The Center for Civic Engagement refers students to local nonprofit service opportunities that range from one-day events to ongoing opportunities to long-term programs. Our office also organizes the Alternative Break, service immersion experiences, and the Bonner Leader program. In addition to the variety of projects initiated each year based on current events, there are several annual events hosted by the Center for Civic Engagement.
