Community Service Programs

Your service can make a huge impact.

Whether you are looking to help for one day or are committed to a longer service experience, the University of Hartford’s Center for Community Service can help set it up. We have tons of connections and offer a wide range of opportunities for you to get involved.

Alternative Spring Break

Hawks volunteering in Houston

As part of our commitment to helping communities in need, UHart students have the opportunity to volunteer during spring break. In the wake of Hurricane Florence, students participating in our 2019 Alternative Spring Break will help people in Eastern North Carolina on March 16—23, 2019. Volunteering to help a struggling community is not always easy, but it is some of the most rewarding work you can do. 

Angel Tree Project

Every year, the Center for Community Service decorates a christmas tree with angel ornaments. Each angel includes a holiday gift wish from a poor child. Help make someone’s holiday wish come true by picking one of the ornaments in Gengras Student Union 209.

Give the Gift of Service

With your help, the UHart community has the ability to make a large impact in the greater Hartford community. Sharing your valuable time for a common good during the holiday season will help tons of people in need. Please stop by the Center for Community Service, where we will take some time to introduce you to, and connect you with, available service opportunities.

As part of our commitment to community service, UHart hosts an annual day of service in the spring. On this day, Students, faculty, and staff all engage in various community service projects throughout the Greater Hartford Area.

Need transportation?

The Center for Community Service is able to provide transportation for any student who would like to volunteer at local agencies and programs within Hartford, West Hartford, and Bloomfield.

Not enough good words can come from me about the Alternative Spring Break program, as it has truly made an impact not only on who I am as a person, but who I am as a student at the University of Hartford.
