About the organization
Mission: The Center for Service and Volunteerism (CSV) at Northern Arizona University aspires to be a leader in the field of service and volunteerism by supporting a vibrant and diverse network of individuals and partner agencies who are making an exceptional impact throughout Arizona supporting direct service, capacity building, professional development, and innovation.
Vision: Enriching lives and strengthening communities through service and volunteerism.
At the Center for Service and Volunteerism at Northern Arizona University, we connect students, older adults, and other community members to national service volunteer opportunities within their communities. By partnering with local schools and non-profits we have created many avenues for volunteers to get involved and make an impact in the community.
We dream of an Arizona that is more engaged in service and volunteerism, and we invite you to join us in this endeavor!
