Giving Back to Our Community

Below is a list of volunteer opportunities available throughout our community.  Please note that a project may change or be removed throughout the year.  While we have reviewed the postings to ensure that they meet our criteria for community-involvement requirements, Elpis College does not officially endorse any organization or program.

Before beginning a volunteer assignment, we highly suggest that you obtain all the necessary information of that project, and inform Elpis College of your plan to earn some hours.  This will ensure that you will be rewarded for your volunteer efforts.  Also, please remember that as students of Elpis College, you represent the school in all community activities and are expected to behave honourably at all times.
