Volunteer Event

Pace Jumpstart offers several opportunities throughout the year to volunteer with the organization. We welcome anyone who is interested in volunteering. You can commit to a year, a month, a week or a day. No time is too short!
If you are a Pace student in need of service-learning course credit, we can provide documentation of your service participation as long as your professor approves the Jumpstart placement.
