Volunteer Opportunities 

Community involvement at Westminster College is thriving! As a student, faculty or staff person at Westminster, you are able to partake in a variety of community service experiences, philanthropic activities or service-learning courses numerous times in a given year.

When seeking a volunteer experience, consider the following questions:
What/whom do you like to work with (for example, kids, senior citizens, animals, construction)?
What past volunteer experiences have you enjoyed and not enjoyed?
How much of a time commitment do you have to volunteer?
What do you hope to get out of your volunteer experience?

Contact the Community Engagement & Service-Learning Office for more information on community service, philanthropic activities and service-learning courses.
