COVID-19 Volunteer Guidelines

Bowdoin students' commitment to the common good and passion for working with and learning from communities has not wavered during the COVID-19 pandemic. This fall, the McKeen Center will continue to help students pursue their passions and connect with community partners. Our top priority will be the health and safety of the community and our students. We encourage all students, living on- or off-campus, to pursue virtual volunteer opportunities. 

If the College is at an orange or red status level, students will not be permitted to leave campus and no in-person volunteering will be permitted. See more information below about in-person volunteering guidelines.  

In-Person Volunteering:

Whenever possible, volunteering and other community engagement should be conducted virtually. However, the McKeen Center recognizes that some volunteer positions cannot be done remotely.  See our guidelines and recommendations for students living on- or off-campus below.
