CECSC encourages students to participate in the  Volunteer Matching process, which takes the form of a brief online survey. The survey assesses a student’s interest, time commitments, available transportation, and academic/personal qualifications. After the completion of the survey, the data is compiled and cross referenced with our list of community-partners and their  volunteer requirements.
