Can you believe October is officially here?! Soon the leaves will be falling & the air will be brisk, making it the perfect time to VOLUNTEER.

As an engaged university, Fresno State students provide over 1 million hours of service annually to the region, with a $31.4 million economic impact. According to President Joseph Castro, students that take one service learning course are 2.8 times more likely to graduate.

In fact, last year, students in CHHS alone contributed 31% of Fresno State’s total service hours! We are proud of our students for the contributions they are making to our community. Together, through simple means of giving back, we can LIVE WELL for Central California!

Find volunteer opportunities by simply contacting your department’s main office or visit the Fresno State Jan and Bud Richter Center for Community Engagement.

“Everybody can be great.  Because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.  You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve.  You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love.”  ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
