If you are part of CUMBRES at UNC you will be required to do Community Service. There are many events that you can choose and learn from. I would suggest that when choosing what to do, make sure it fits your time schedule and your career goals.

These are just some volunteer experiences I have enjoyed over the years, I am pretty sure you will find more. I have found that the best way to find opportunities like these is read through bulletin boards around UNC, specially in the Education Department at McKee Hall, Cesar Chavez Center and email updates that Penny Mascarenas from CUMBRES sends every week. These places will also help you with other courses that require observations and in-classroom hours with ELL students.
If you find a community service idea that you truly enjoy, don’t forget to leave a comment below so others can learn from it.
