Be passionate, be focused — and get angry — when driving change
Our students are deeply connected to the wider world and actively pursue opportunities to contribute to it. For many, community engagement activities are among the most empowering and memorable aspects of their time at Clark.
The Community Engagement Office strives to build a campus culture that values and promotes socially responsible citizenship. We provide diverse ways for you to engage with individuals and make an impact on communities outside our campus through volunteer work in the Worcester area and beyond. Volunteering is a great way for you to build relationships, share your talents for the benefit of others, and gain meaningful experiences that will help you define your passions and shape your future path.
Community Engagement Fair
At the beginning of each fall semester, representatives from local nonprofits come to Clark’s campus to introduce students to opportunities in our Worcester community, and to connect with those who are interested in volunteer or internship experiences.
Clark has more than 20 student groups focused on issues related to social justice, advocacy, and volunteering. Attend the Activities Fair hosted by the Student Leadership Office in the fall to see what’s out there — or start a group of your own.
One-Day Service Projects
Not enough time to make a weekly commitment? You can still contribute by participating in one-day service projects that happen throughout the year — for example, by serving dinner at Jeremiah’s Inn or helping with a neighborhood clean-up.
