Penn State DuBois' 10th Annual Community Outreach Day
The Office of Student Engagement at the Penn State DuBois Campus is currently preparing for our 10th Annual Community Outreach Day!
This event is for the roughly 200 incoming students to participate in during new student orientation. Orientation groups will be divided into smaller groups to participate in community service projects and collaborate with various organizations in the greater DuBois community. We are currently working through the details of numerous schedule options and are looking for sites for all three potentials.
Option 1: Community Service 6 feet apart: We are looking for organizations that are able to provide onsite community service opportunities that our students could fulfill while staying 6 feet apart. Ideally, these opportunities would take place outdoors, and could include painting, landscaping, maintenance, litter clean up, etc.
Option 2: Community Service from a distance: We are looking for organizations that are able to provide community service opportunities to our students that they could perform from our campus. Ideas could include phone calls, compiling lists, assisting with planning, etc.
Option 3: Virtual Community Service: We are looking for organizations that are able to provide opportunities for our students to give back to the community from their own homes, these could include writing letters, writing cards, requesting donations (when possible), etc.
Community Outreach Day is meant to provide students with the opportunity to selflessly engage in volunteer tasks intended to better the surrounding DuBois community.
