Request Volunteers

The Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) can help you find both one-time and long-term volunteers.

One-time Volunteers:

CCAR programs many one-time volunteer events for students.  These events generally take place on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays, are attended by approximately ten to twenty students, and are anywhere between three and eight hours long.

CCAR also sends out frequent listserv announcements about volunteer events that community organizations are having.

To inquire about organizing a one-time volunteer event or to find Pace volunteers contact:

Daniel Botting
Assistant Director
New York City Campus
(212) 346-1791
  Caitlin Kelly
Program Coordinator
Pleasantville Campus
(914) 773-3841

Please note: you must send information about your volunteer event one month prior to its date to be advertised on the New York City campus’ listserv.

Long-Term Volunteers:

Pace University is unique in that it has an area of core curriculum courses called Civic Engagement and Public Values, also known as AOK1.

AOK1 courses offer students an exciting opportunity to put what they have learned in the classroom into action. Specifically, Pace students get first-hand experience serving the needs of communities in New York City and Westchester County. These unique educational experiences challenge students to serve the community, while developing a rigorous intellectual understanding of their personal commitments, and obligations as citizens in a democratic society.

A typical requirement of each AOK1 course is an unpaid internship, or long-term volunteer position with a community partner.

To advertise your unpaid internship or volunteer position in on our Web site you can fill out one of our online forms.  For positions in the New York City area, complete this form. For positions in the Westchester area, complete this form.
