Semester-Long Programs:

CAVE offers 10 different semester-long volunteer programs in the local community. CAVE volunteers are enrolled in a 1-unit academic course where you provide 30 hours of service in 10 weeks (about 3 hours per week), attend a community engagement workshop, and submit short papers reflecting on your service. Semester-long programs are perfect if you are looking for an extended volunteer experience where you can gain experience and work in the community. Programs are offered at a variety of days/times, locations, and organizations.
