About

About CU in the Community

CU in the Community is a series of one-time, student-led, volunteer projects offered each semester in collaboration with local nonprofit organizations and CU Boulder departments. All students are invited to participate on any and all volunteer projects of their choice to gain understanding of social and environmental issues, engage in direct service, reflect on their impact and learn about continued engagement.

General information for participants: Students who sign up to volunteer for CU in the Community projects will receive a detailed reminder email related to their unique project a week before the event with information about where to check in, what to wear and what to bring. In general, we recommend that volunteers bring plenty of drinking water and any other personal care supplies necessary to be active and engaged. Volunteers are encouraged to wear closed toe shoes and layers appropriate for Colorado weather and/or indoor tasks specific to projects. Transportation and food are provided.

Your involvement is more impactful than you think! Please be mindful that signing up for a project and not showing up the day of and/or canceling last minute has an impact on resources used for food and transportation, community organizations that are counting on volunteers to help them meet their goals, and other students who want to participate. If you must cancel, please do so as far in advance as possible so that other students have the opportunity to participate and to help ensure that there are enough volunteers committed to meet the goals of the project. If you sign up for a project, please plan to show up and participate.
