Volunteer Center Resources

Enterprise LogoMission Statement:

The SU Enterprise Volunteer Center is committed to serving the community and University by offering meaningful connections between students who care and organizations in need. The Center is dedicated to promoting lifelong values of commitment to service and civic engagement, encouraging awareness of community needs, and facilitating service opportunities to address those needs.

Our Goals:

  • Connect interested students to community needs
  • Develop collaborative linkages within the University and across the community
  • Facilitate student development through leadership and service
  • Empower regional growth by offering student resources to assist in community transformation
  • Prepare students for careers through volunteering and encouraging a sense of community service throughout their careers

How to make volunteering a "Win-Win":

  • Volunteer in organizations that can make the most of your skills.
  • Identify a place where you would like to get experience--offer to volunteer there.
  • Treat ALL volunteer efforts as a job: be dependable, on-time and professional.
  • Stay with any volunteer effort for at least one semester, preferably two or more.
  • Start your volunteer work as early in your college career as possible.
  • Inquire about a volunteer internship possibility.
