Volunteer Opportunities

Where do I go to learn about volunteer opportunities?

Where do I go to sign up for CEO sponsored service opportunities, including Campus Kitchen?
  • When CEO hosts an event, it will be posted under the Events menu in OrgSync. Students can visit that portal to sign up. Some events are open to the campus, some are open just to CEO members, so join CEO on OrgSync to get access to all opportunities.
How can I help put together the volunteer opportunities? Please Visit: Volunteer Opportunities
