The Center for Community Service and Engagement

Every year Albright students contribute hundreds of hours of service to the college and the community. The Center for Community Service and Engagement can assist students in finding long- and short-term projects that match their interests and availability. Additionally, students are welcome to find their own volunteer opportunities and ask for help in contacting the organization. The Center is student-run, so there is always someone willing to help in anyway possible. In September, the Center also sponsors a Volunteer Fair to introduce students to area agencies and their volunteer needs.

In 1995, Albright joined Alvernia College, Kutztown University, Penn State Berks, and Reading Area Community College in forming the Berks Council on Higher Education. The community service office of the Council works to incorporate students from the five colleges into community projects through events like College Care Day, the Higher Education Month of Service, Leaders in Service workshops, and established agency fundraisers.

The Albright The Center for Community Service and Engagement is located in the lower level of the Student Center (near Jake’s Place) and is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Go down the steps to Jake’s, take a quick right and go through the doors. The Center is the first door on the right. Feel free to stop by. If we are not in the office, you can also call 610-921-7621 or email us at volunteer@albright.edu. We can also be found on aLink, Facebook, and Instagram.
