Change The Way You Learn

Volunteering doesn’t just change your community; it changes you. Serving as a volunteer provides you with resume building experiences, allows you to explore careers and helps you establish valuable relationships with community leaders. At Western service can also provide hands-on learning opportunities that are directly connected to your courses and can even take you across the world. Read on and contact us to discover the many ways that service can enhance your university experience.
