Volunteer Center

Welcome to the Davenport University Volunteer Center!

The Volunteer Center strives to provide Davenport University students with opportunities to serve their community to expand and enrich their social and educational experiences, and challenge them to be committed to a life of community service with an understanding of social responsibility. Volunteering at Davenport is not only a great way to serve your community but also offers many opportunities to meet other students outside the classroom, boost your resume, and make the most of your experience at Davenport!
