- VOLUNTEER DATABASE: search for opportunities to volunteer with an organization in Boston
- CAMPUS ORGANIZATIONS: become involved with a service group on campus
- SERVICE/IMMERSION TRIPS: learn about domestic and international travel programs
- ACADEMIC PROGRAMS: discover service-learning courses at BC
- ADVOCACY: explore ways to work with others for social change
- POST GRADUATE VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS: consider opportunities for full-time service after you leave BC
