Community Engagement and Volunteering

Clark students out in the community

Volunteering

 

Clark University's institutional commitment to active citizenship and the surrounding community is mirrored by the individual actions of its students. Many volunteer on an ongoing basis, helping to support the work of local organizations. Others embrace advocacy, raising awareness about causes ranging from health to social justice. Students whose schedules don't allow them to volunteer regularly often take part in day of service events like Just Do It Day. The Community Engagement Office is excited to helps students as they explore the different ways they can get involved in the Worcester community.

 

Community Engagement and Internship Fair

 

Each September, the Community Engagement and Internship Fair brings representatives from organizations throughout Worcester to Clark University's campus. For students looking to volunteer, this is the best chance to connect with community partners and learn about their missions firsthand.
