Community Service Opportunities

  • Riverways Education Partnerships is a K-12 outreach program that connects undergraduate students from the University of Washington with educational and service opportunities in local and regional schools and community organizations through tutoring and mentoring. Students can earn credit for service by registering for EDUC 401.
  • STEM Alternative Spring Break STEM ASB is a quarter-long program where students take a preparatory EDUC 401 seminar in the Winter quarter (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:30-5:50 pm), then spend the week of UW's Spring Break (March 17 – March 22, 2024) running STEM outreach programming (in teams of 4-5 UW students) with 3rd- to 12th-grade students in rural and tribal communities in Washington state.
  • The Community Engagement and Leadership Education (CELE) Center at the University of Washington provides students with opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to contribute to thriving communities; building authentic community and campus partnerships drive our work.
