Current Opportunities to Partner
Campus to Community Days are half-day sessions that connect Carleton students with local non-profit and community organizations. They combine education with, hands-on work, reflection and community engagement. This is a voluntary service that provides community partners with a group of students for a 3-4 hour time commitment. Campus the Community Days occur throughout the academic year (from September to April).
