The 3rd annual Community & Campus Day of Service (CCDOS) will kick off National Volunteer Week once again on April 11, 2015. Hundreds of volunteers participate in this community-wide event each year, logging thousands of hours of volunteering time on this day alone. Learn how the Office of Public Engagement, CUVolunteer, Illini Fighting Hunger, and a host of other University and community groups have worked together to make this event possible.


From the Speakers: Join us to hear about how a small team was able to create a mechanism to connect nonprofits with people in the community interested in volunteering... and what you might want to consider if you want to make something happen that you really believe in. Hear fromĀ Indi Go Art Co-Op how they've used the site to recruit volunteers for their mission of providing a space in which artists, musicians, and appreciators of art can come together to celebrate the arts.


CUVolunteerĀ is a partnership between the United Way of Champaign County, the University of Illinois Office of Public Engagement, Office for Math, Science, and Technology Education, and Office of Volunteer Programs, and a few members of the general public interested in making volunteering easier in our local community.

Since its launch, CUVolunteer already has over 100 registered organizations with over 700 registered volunteers.
