Community Service Initiatives

Community service is a great way to not only give back, but also to learn about your own skills and talents, gain valuable work experience, engage in civic responsibility, and meet new people. Community Service Ambassadors seek to connect you or your group to a service project that is meaningful to both you and to those in need. The Ambassadors also plan quarterly events to promote a culture of service at UCR, and work to build sustainable relationships with community organizations in need of our students’ support, whether it is a one-time project or a weekly commitment.
