The McKeen Center is providing funding to support students who volunteer with a nonprofit or municipal organization between semesters.

The Program

The Winter Break Community Engagement Fund provides $750 to support students in committing to reciprocally impactful community engagement during the 2022 winter break. Participants will commit to providing 50 hours of volunteer service to a nonprofit or municipal organization and will receive training, support in identifying a host site, and a financial award from the McKeen Center. Volunteer work can be remote or in-person. Looking for more details about the program? An information sheet with frequently asked questions is available here.
