Civic Engagement in the Community

Second Floor • Passan Hall • 570-408-4100 (T) • 570- 408-7811 (F) • Email

The community service portion of Wilkes University’s First Year Student Orientation is unique and provides incoming students with the early opportunity to experience what the campus community is all about. Volunteering within the local Wilkes-Barre area offers beneficial hands on interactions with residents, business owners, and non-profit organizations to new students. Some work done in previous orientation years includes tutoring children, playing with animals, visiting with elderly residents in nursing homes, repairing and cleaning up gardens, and much more.

Civic Engagement in the community takes place on Monday morning of Orientation. The following is a list of what to bring for community service: *Please note that each student will be provided with a t-shirt

  • Old, appropriate, comfortable clothing / long pants
  • Old sneakers / closed – toed shoes
  • Sun screen
  • Bug spray
  • Sunglasses
     

Here is a sneak peak at some of the sites students will be volunteering at this summer:
