Find Local Volunteer Opportunities

Community-Based Service & Learning

There are many different opportunities available to meet your interests.  Click on the "Gustavus Engage" button below to find opportunities.  If you would like assistance, please contact the CBSL office and we will be happy to meet with you one-on-one to help you find a site and a volunteer assignment that fits with your needs and interests.

We offer a free shuttle service for riders who are volunteering, enrolled in a course with a community-based learning component, or doing community-based work study.

Gustavus Engage is an online service platform that helps connect Gustavus students to service opportunities in the community. Gusties can log in with their Gustavus accounts to learn more about service options, register for volunteer opportunities, and track their service hours.  Faculty can use this tool to organize and present service opportunities to students.  Community organizations can establish an account for free and list their volunteer opportunities.
