Community Service

Brockport Serves!

The College offers community service opportunities that support its members as they improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering.

Throughout the year, members of the College community will have opportunities to explore diverse forms of service, and develop an understanding of community needs, especially through personal experiences with communities outside of Brockport. Community Development collaborates with campus organizations and departments, national nonprofit organizations, and other groups whose missions intersect to provide community service opportunities. These collaborations further advance the College's goal of fostering an environment of engaged citizens in service to their communities.

What you gain from serving...
  • A broader concern for the welfare of others
  • A sense of doing something worthwhile

  • Openness to persons different than yourself
  • Openness to new experiences
  • Personal Power
  • Valuable experiences related to your chosen career

Three R’s to volunteering...

  • Responsibility - A great deal of responsibility goes into volunteering. The agency needs to know when they will be able to count on you to help. It is important to have good communication with both the volunteer agency and the volunteer program. All activities and responsibilities outlined in the contract between the agency and the volunteer must be followed.
  • Reward is found in knowing that you are making a difference in someone’s life.
  • Recreation is found in choosing a volunteer site that interests you.
