Direct service is one way to engage with local community members and fulfill needs for those experiencing hardship and oppression. Through relationships with many local nonprofits, the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement is able to connect students to volunteer opportunities as part of our leadership programs and through a database. If you're looking for a long-term commitment or a one-time community service opportunity, you've come to the right place; we encourage you to browse our database and combine your volunteer experiences with our other educational and reflective opportunities to become agents of social change.
Search organizations and one-time and long-term volunteer opportunities
1. Click "Login" on the top right, then use the yellow button to login using Drexel Connect.
2. You can search organizations, opportunities, and events by clicking on the left-hand menu and then browsing what's available. The best way to use this database is to think about what social issues you're interested in and search for organizations or opportunities that relate to those issues. In the future, we will also have the capability to work with student groups to schedule group volunteer events and other unique opportunities. Stay tuned as we develop the database further.
3. You can become a "fan" of an organization to get alerts about them - if you are interested in a specific organization, we also highly encourage you to visit their site to learn more. Our database is a great starting point but we may not have all their opportunities listed as we only list what they share with us specifically for students.
4. You can also sign up for opportunities if they are listed in our database.
