Volunteer Opportunities


Put classroom theory into practice! By helping others through service projects, you gain valuable experience in community leadership and civic engagement!

NIU is home to many different service-oriented student organizations and clubs, including Camp Kesem at NIU, Circle K International, Engineers Without Borders, NIU Best Buddies, and UNICEF Campus Initiative. In addition, many Greek-letter and other social organizations have significant service components. Community service events take place throughout the school year.


Check the NIU calendar of events for upcoming service days or organize your own service outing.
