There are a variety of ways faculty and staff can utilize the resources of VSLC :
Our database if available to anyone in the BC community looking to volunteer in the greater Boston community on a regular basis.
If you would like to develop an experiential learning opportunity within a course you are designing, please make an appointment with the VSLC at least 2 months prior to the class beginning. We are happy to assist you in navigating the database or engaging a community partner.
Do you know a student discerning a year or more of full-time service after graduation? Check out our Post Grad Volunteer Programming.
Are you interested in a departmental or team project or service experience? Please contact the VSLC at least 2 months in advance for assistance.
The VSLC offers a number of ways for the faculty/staff community at Boston College to be involved with issues of service and justice:
- Nicaragua Faculty/Staff Immersion Trip The VSLC and Intersections sponsor an annual trip in late May to Nicaragua with the Center for Global Education.
- Eagle Volunteers
Eagle Volunteers is a program that gives the BC community the chance to volunteer one-time or as often as their schedule allows. Transportation is provided.
- ELL Summer
During the summer months, our ELL program is open to faculty/staff tutors partnering with our BC staff and faculty who would like to work on their English language skills.
- VSLC Summer Book Swap
Faculty and staff are invited to swap and/or donate books at this annual event. Remaining books are donated to More Than Words, a local non-profit working with at-risk youth.
