See-Saw-A-Thon balances fun and philanthropyWhen parents converge on campus for Family Weekend Sept. 18-19, they will likely see students see-sawing in front of the Campus Center....

“The mission of Centre College is to prepare students for lives of learning, leadership, and service in a global society.”

The Office of Community Service is your connection to service opportunities on campus, in the Danville/Boyle County area, and across the world. For students at Centre, service is not just a one-time activity – it’s a way of life.

Over 85% of Centre students volunteer on a regular basis, experiencing the joy of creating positive change in our community. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Anyone can be great, because anyone can serve.”

In each opportunity for community and public service, students work to thoughtfully recognize, analyze, and address local social and community needs in collaboration with community partners. Centre emphasizes that service is not a one-time activity, but an opportunity for the life-long integration of learning and community engagement.

Please use the resources on this page to connect to service opportunities in our area, or if you are interested in starting a service project of your own, please contact Matthew Klooster, Director of Community Service and the Bonner Program to get started!
