The mission of Project H.E.L.P (Hands Engaged in Linking People) is to provide students with volunteer experiences that are compatible with their interests, passions, talents, and skills and that foster a sense of personal and civic responsibility while meeting the needs of the local community.
Project H.E.L.P. strives to meet the needs of the community, while providing students with opportunities to volunteer in areas of their interest. Students have rewarding experiences, gain insight into societal issues, have fun, and also build strong relationships with community members and other students.
If any of the volunteer opportunities mentioned below are of interest to you, please take a minute to fill out a volunteer interest form and submit it to us. Someone from Project HELP will contact you after they receive it to go over your interests.
Project H.E.L.P. has a wide variety of on-going service programs for students at SUNY Plattsburgh. Keep in mind that most on-going programs are a long term commitment. If this is an issue, look below at our one-time volunteer opportunities.
