A Place to Start
Looking for a day of service? Interested in learning more about the local community? Would you like to check out an organization or possible career direction? CCES is here to help.
Engaging in service connects you with others, is good for your mind and body, can advance your career, and bring fun and fulfillment to your life.¹ If you or your group are looking for service opportunities a one-time volunteer opportunity is a great way to begin.
Take a look at the Volunteer and Engagement Opportunities Board and our weekly newsletters for upcoming community happenings. Want to plan your own event? Meet with a CCES staff member during office hours! We have connections with various Community Partners who would be happy to work with you.
*Please note: As for any event planning, group coordinating will require at least 1 month in advance of volunteer opportunity and even 2-3 months may be best for the most meaningful experience. Check out our Service Planning Guide for more information.
Volunteers are welcome to help at the Garden of Edible Grace, which grows organic produce for community meals and the food pantry. Work parties are held in the early fall and spring time, usually on Saturday morning-afternoons. Contact Trinity Member Kurt Scearce at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved or for more information.
