Make Your Impact in the School of Science

One-time volunteer opportunities are a good way to explore your options, but once you determine a project or organization you enjoy, you should become a sustaining volunteer. Sustained volunteerism allows you to integrate with an organization, add to your professional network, build your skills, and have a broader impact.
