Community Service Ideas For College Students

Leah Said:

Any ideas for an outdoor community service program for college students?

We Answered:

I helped organize one at my University years ago. We had a student community Service Organization and we paired up with a local school (my University was in a very underprivileged section of North Philadelphia). On a nice summer day we brought children from elementary school to the campus and painted flower pots for a nursing home in the area on the quad.

We also helped mentor the children to get them excited about the possibility of higher education.

Maybe hook up with another organization, like an AIDS hospice or a nursing home to plan enjoyable outings on your campus.

Community service ideas for college students?!!??!?

We Answered:

Offering your services at a school as Tutors. Or arrange with the local library to offer tutoring services on certain days.

When does obamas college financial aid plan start?

We Answered:

Unfortunately, that plan must be put in to the form of a bill and passed by both chambers of congress before being signed by the president and becoming law.

In addition with the state of our federal budget and the current economic crisis, I don't know how much money will be left for new education programs.

If the program is created via legislation, it will still take probably six months to a year for the Department of Education to implement it.

Stay tuned.....

Tim Said:

What is a good idea for community service for a high school student?

We Answered:

The first thing I'd advise you to do is find out if your school has a community service coordinator. S/he would be able to provide you with a list of community organizations that welcome student volunteers.

Another source is Volunteer Match. Type in your zip code and a keyword ("computers", for instance) and you'll get a list of possible volunteer opportunities.

If you choose something you enjoy doing it will be easier to keep it up in the long run. Don't like dealing with people? How about dog walking for a shelter? Like computers? Many organizations need people to maintain their donor databases. Look for a good match and don't be afraid to research the organization before you make a commitment. Good luck!
