Westchester Community College Volunteer Services
Enriching the lives of students and volunteers
Established in 1992, the Westchester Community College Volunteer Department has been a driving force in providing students with essential services that go beyond the college’s budget. Over the years, the department has witnessed remarkable growth, with over 500 volunteers from across Westchester County generously sharing their time and talents to empower our students to achieve their academic and career aspirations.
The college’s volunteers embody diversity. They represent a vibrant mix of professionals, business leaders, retirees, homemakers, college students, faculty, and staff. Together, they contribute thousands of service hours annually, making a lasting mark on the college community.
Impactful contributions across campus
The impact of our volunteers extends throughout the campus, with their contributions reaching every corner. Some volunteers engage in direct one-on-one and small group interactions with students throughout the semester. Conversation Partners host weekly chats with ESL students, fostering confidence in their English-speaking abilities. Tutors provide invaluable support at tutorial centers across campus, helping students develop their reading, writing, math, science, and computer skills.
Beyond these direct interactions, volunteers also dedicate their time to special projects that enhance the campus experience. From restoring the beauty of our historic landscaping to assisting with cultural arts programs, their efforts enrich the entire college community.
Rewards beyond measure
Volunteering at Westchester Community College is not just about giving back; it’s also about gaining personal rewards. Volunteers are drawn to the stimulating academic environment and the picturesque campus grounds. They cherish the collegial relationships they forge with Westchester Community College professionals and express immense satisfaction in knowing they are making a meaningful difference.
As we embrace the spirit of volunteerism, we extend a warm invitation to anyone seeking to fulfill their “Call to Service.” Our dedicated staff will take great pleasure in matching your skills and interests with the perfect volunteer opportunity.
Together, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of our students and the future of our community.
