We are launching the Good Deed of the Week Program! With this initiative, the Colby Volunteer Center hopes to provide more students with the opportunity to engage in volunteer work in the greater Waterville area even if they cannot make the weekly commitment. The Program will present a series of one-time volunteer events throughout the semester for Colby community members to sign up for on an individual basis. This is a great way for individuals, groups of friends, clubs, and/or teams to get involved in the greater Waterville community.

We have many exciting opportunities coming in the next few weeks. We have listed them below, but have also put them on the CVC calendar online. If you are interested in volunteering, please either sign up on the online schedule OR at the info desk in Pulver. The CVC will send you an email to confirm your interest in the event.

Note: If you would like to volunteer with a group, please sign up for the event and then send the CVC (cvc@colby.edu) an email with the list of people who would like to volunteer together. Thank you!
