Center for Service & Social Action

Getting Started

There are so many exciting options for service, choosing just one can be overwhelming!

Here are some questions to ask yourself when making a commitment to service:

  • Am I doing service for a course? If so, what is my professor’s requirement? If not, why am I interested in doing service?
  • What issues/causes interest me?  Hunger, homelessness, education, etc.
  • What population do I want to work with?  Children, senior citizens, persons with developmental disabilities, etc.
  • Do any service sites or activities relate to my career goals?
  • What is my availability?  Don’t forget to account for the travel time required to get to and from service!

Choose carefully and you will be able to learn, thrive, and be of service to others!
