Important Update: Court Mandated Community Service and COVID-19
Due to the impacts of COVID-19, it may be possible for students currently working on court mandated community service to receive an extended deadline for their community service hours. 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 Volunteer Resource Center (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. Prior to completion of any service, students participate in a Community Service Orientation through the VRC, which counts as an hour of service. The one hour Community Service Orientation will provide attendees with the following information and resources:

  • 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.

Schedule your Community Service Orientation

  • During the Community Service Orientation, participants will need to have their camera on and plan to be engaged with the facilitator and other attendees.
  • Attendees will be charged $25.00 through the Bursar's Office for the facilitation of their Community Service Orientation.

The Volunteer Resource Center is open. We will have limited staffing and space to meet in person. Please request an appointment to meet with us virtually.  Our staff can be reached Monday - Friday from 9:00am - 4:00pm via email at
