CU in the community photos

Check back in March 2019 for summer service opportunities.

Summer service opportunities for CU Faculty and Staff have been brought back by popular demand! In response to multiple requests from across campus, the Volunteer Resource Center (VRC) is partnering with a handful of local nonprofit organizations to offer CU in the Community Summer Service Days! The goal of these service projects is to create an opportunity for the division to connect with one another and give back to our local communities.

We offer half-day morning and afternoon projects that fit easily into your professional day. Each project will be lead by VRC staff member who will provide information regarding directions, what to bring and any important details pertaining to the project you choose.

Important Volunteer Notes:

  • By signing up to volunteer, you are agreeing to the attached waiver of responsibility. Depending on the project, one may be exposed to sun and weather elements, allergens, animals, insects, garden and/or construction tools and equipment, and other potential hazards. Please feel free to ask us any questions you have about accessibility and safety related to any project.
  • No transportation will be provided. All participants must be able to get themselves to and from the service projects. 
  • Lunch will not be provided, so please pack snacks, food, and water as needed.

Thank you for your interest in service. We can't wait to CU in the Community!
