Please Note: Due to the volume and breadth of opportunities we post, Ministry & Service cannot screen off-campus host sites, their work environment, or the content of the activities offered. Therefore, before volunteering off-campus, it is essential for each student to (1) evaluate whether his or her goals can be achieved through the experience; (2) assess his or her mental, physical, and academic readiness for the opportunity; (3) research the safety of the environment and activity; and (4) assume all risk involved with the opportunity.
