Pepperdine Volunteer Center
Each volunteer program focuses on a particular social issue and works with a specific non-profit organization. A student program coordinator leads each program and provides overall guidance for the volunteers.
Children's Nature Institute
Boys and Girls Club of Malibu
Since 2002, the PVC's Jumpstart program has paired almost 100 Pepperdine students with pre-school children in local low-income neighborhoods. Students volunteer a total of 300 hours in one academic year and earn their work-study award in the process.
ONE-TIME SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
One-time service events are held throughout the year to provide students, staff, faculty, and alumni with short-term opportunities to serve. Each service event is unique and offers participants a meaningful way to connect with a variety of service organizations in our community.
Pepperdine's spring break service trips, Project Serve, send teams of students to domestic and international locations to provide service. Project Serve applications are accepted September through early October.
NEW VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS
Have you been volunteering with an organization that you would like to see implemented as a PVC program or event? To do so, please complete the "New Volunteer Program" proposal form. Proposals for new volunteer programs/events are accepted on a rolling basis, but are usually offered the following fall semester. All proposals should be submitted to Peter Thompson by email.
