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