Welcome to Portland State University's hub for finding volunteer opportunities with campus and community partners. Powered by Give Pulse, this platform makes PSU's motto of “Let Knowledge Serve the City” easily accessible for students, staff, faculty, and community partners. Whether you are looking for a one-time or ongoing service project, or are involved in a Community-Based Learning class, Give Pulse can help you get connected to meaningful projects.
The Student Community Engagement Center (SCEC) is your go-to resource for co-curricular student civic engagement at Portland State University -- in other words, serving in the community outside of your classes! From one-time service projects (working in gardens and parks, sorting donations, sprucing up community spaces, and more) to longer-term opportunities (mentoring elementary school kids, participating in an Alternative Spring Break service trip, or becoming a Student Leader for Service), get involved in the way that meets your schedule and interests! Visit the Student Community Engagement Center subgroup to learn more about our opportunities.
In addition to SCEC-sponsored service projects, you can also browse through a variety of other opportunities hosted by our community partners by visiting the PSU GivePulse Opportunity Search Page.
For questions, contact the Student Community Engagement Center: email@example.com or 503-725-8132
