Volunteer Service Experience

Serving the community and learning valuable skills

Volunteer service experience is another way in which students can "test drive" possible career choices while meeting a real community need, developing leadership and organizational skills, and growing in civic engagement.  Students may take advantage of the broad range of local and regional service opportunities available with nonprofit agencies/organizations, public schools, and small businesses.  Students may also enroll in an academic class that includes a service-learning component. 

To find out about service-learning courses, go to LSU's CCELL web site. To learn more about opportunities to participate in community service via the Ogden Honors College and LSU, visit our Service Opportunities page.
