Important Update: Court Mandated Community Service and COVID-19
Students are able to volunteer with nonprofit organizations that are open and operational during this time. Volunteer opportunities will follow Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and volunteers are responsible for following protocol required to serve vulnerable populations responsibly and prevent the spread of COVID19. Some virtual volunteer opportunities may exist based on current community need and in person volunteer opportunities will require social distancing and a face covering over the nose and mouth. Students with mandated service hours will need to directly contact their probation officer for updated deadline information and to discuss possible extensions based on individual circumstances.

The VRC is proud to partner with the Boulder Municipal Court in order to serve as a resource to CU students who are sanctioned to complete court mandated volunteer hours. This program provides students with the support and information they need to be successful and self directed as court mandated volunteers. Students who have been sanctioned through the Boulder Municipal Court are required to attend an hour long orientation provided by the VRC. The orientation counts as one hour of community service and provides students with our service philosophy and information about how to get started to successfully submit proof of completion.

  • An overview of programs and services offered by the Volunteer Resource Center.
  • The basics of how to be an effective volunteer and engage in meaningful community service.
  • How to connect with volunteer opportunities on and off campus.
  • Tools and support for time management and personal planning.
  • Additional support resources and referrals.

  • During the Community Service Orientation, participants will need to have their camera on and plan to be engaged with the facilitator and other attendees.
