Request Volunteers

The Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) can help you find both one-time and long-term volunteers.  These are but two of the more common ways that Pace students connect with the community, to explore ways that Pace might be able to connect with you, feel free to contact us directly.

One-time Volunteers:

CCAR programs many one-time volunteer events for students.  These events generally take place on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays, are attended by approximately ten to twenty students, and are anywhere between three and eight hours long.

CCAR also sends out frequent listserv announcements about volunteer events that community organizations are having.

To inquire about organizing a one-time volunteer event or to find Pace volunteers contact:

Please note: you must send information about your volunteer event one month prior to its date to be advertised on the New York City campus’ listserv.

Long-Term Volunteers:

Pace University is unique in that it has a selection of core curriculum courses called Civic Engagement and Public Values (CE).

CE courses offer students an exciting opportunity to put what they have learned in the classroom into action. Specifically, our students get first-hand experience serving the needs of communities in New York City and Westchester County. These unique educational experiences challenge students to serve the community, while developing a rigorous intellectual understanding of their personal commitments, and obligations as citizens in a democratic society.

A typical requirement of each CE course is an unpaid internship, or long-term volunteer position with a community partner.
