Fall 2019 Orientation Schedule:
Orientations will be offered twice weekly during the Fall Semester on Wednesdays from 4:00 PM-5:00PM and Thursdays from 11:00 AM-12:00PM. If these times do not work for you, please email volunteer@colorado.edu to schedule your one hour long orientation. You are required to complete the orientation within 7 days of your sanction. All orientations will meet at the Volunteer Resource Center in UMC 458.

Community Service Orientations serve as an introduction to service. During an orientation you will:

  • Understand the basics of volunteering and how to engage in meaningful service.
  • Find at least three meaningful volunteer opportunities that are matched with your personal interests and talents.
  • Understand how to complete your volunteer hours and plan out time to complete them.
  • Understand the programs and services of the Volunteer Resource Center to further their volunteer engagement.

Volunteering doesn't have to be a punitive experience. It can be an opportunity to engage in your community, share your passions with others, build your experience and resume, and give back to the community you take part it in everyday.

Why Volunteer?

"It was absolutely amazing! Boulder flood relief was a very humbling experience and I will continue to help out. At the radio station I am continuing to volunteer to become a DJ! Both experiences I would have never got to do or learn so much if I didn't have required hours but I have learned volunteering is just a good individual activity to do and is very gratifying." ~ Boulder Municipal Court Student
