Community Service

ban21

Community Service, a functional area of Student Involvement & Leadership Development, focuses on providing our students with opportunities to connect to and make a difference in their community. Through service, students not only enrich their community, but also gain hands-on experience in various work fields, build relationships with their peers and learn valuable networking skills.

To find the service opportunity that best fits you, browse this Community Service website. From there, simply view our volunteer opportunities page for upcoming events. If you are still unsure about which opportunity would best suit you, please feel free to contact us at communityservice@niu.edu or call 815-753-6707 to schedule a consultation.
