Learn how good it feels to give back
Community service has always been a priority at Berkeley, and students, staff, and faculty support numerous causes on a regular basis. The Berkeley Cares Community Service Program is the College's social responsibility initiative that builds on Berkeley’s long tradition of addressing important societal issues. Through this program, students, faculty, and staff are committed to donating hours of hands-on service to the community and creating a community of care at each campus and surrounding neighborhoods. It is a great way to get involved, meet new people, and help those in need.
Students have the opportunity to get involved with community organizations such as area soup kitchens, shelters, schools, and libraries, as well as national organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the American Conference on Diversity, Community Blood Services, Children’s Aid and Family Services, the ALS Association, and more.
