The Center for Community Outreach, originally Service Learning, was created in 1999 to provide members of the Keystone Family meaningful opportunities to serve the needs of the community. During its short history, the Center for Community Outreach has already documented over 52,000 hours of service.
Each semester, the Center for Community Outreach oversees dozens of innovative service and volunteer projects, including campus blood drives and voter registration drives. The students and staff that are involved with Community Outreach work with different organizations such as:
- Special Olympics
- Ronald McDonald House
- ARC Dances
- Big Brothers/Big Sister Halloween Festival
- Lupus Walk
- United Way Day of Caring
- St. Francis of Assisi Soup Kitchen
- Friends of the Poor Thanksgiving Dinner
The Center for Community Outreach also sponsors the annual Alternative Spring Break Trip to give the students a chance to serve beyond the local community. Past trips have been to Washington, D.C., Nassau, Bahamas, New Orleans, Louisiana, Keystone, West Virginia, and Miami, Florida.
