The Volunteer Center exists to connect students with meaningful service opportunities and to affect change in communities locally and globally by partnering with non-profit organizations.
If you have a need for volunteers either in an ongoing or one-time capacity, you may post these opportunities on our Web site. Pepperdine students have access to these opportunities and can search for service events/programs that fit their interests.
Service-Learning is opportunity for Pepperdine students to connect to the community through academic course work. Professors throughout the campus are partnering with the community to support student-learning outcomes. Contact Peter Thompson for more information.
Step Forward Day
Every September Pepperdine sends over 1,500 students, faculty, staff, and alumni into the community to serve on one day. We are always looking for new sites. Find more information about Step Forward Day here. You can also complete this form for this year's coming Step Forward Day on September 6, 2014.
The Pepperdine Volunteer Center is always looking to expand our programs and partnerships. We look for partnering community organizations that will share our educational agenda of developing Pepperdine students in their understanding of social issues and role as engaged citizens.
Our most successful community relationships share this common goal and understand education as part of the mission of their organization. Considerations are also based on the expressed need of the non-profit organization, the consistency and sustainability of the service opportunity, as well as the degree to which the Volunteer Center is already engaged in the particular type of service being suggested.
If you or your organization is interested in partnering with the Volunteer Center, please email Justin.Schneider@pepperdine.edu.
