SUNY is providing guidance for community-based applied learning experiences during the COVID-19 crisis, including community-engaged learning, service learning, and volunteer experiences.
As a result, the Civic and Community Engagement Office strongly recommends that students participate in REMOTE community service projects and experiences.
There are many opportunities for remote projects and experiences that can be mutually beneficial while considering the health and safety of students and vulnerable community members, including grant writing, data entry, research, social media management, and tutoring/mentoring activities.
We encourage students to transition to remote activities rather than halt your volunteer and civically engaged activities.
The CCE is here to assist students with these transitions. Please contact us for remote volunteer opportunities and ideas. You may also check our website or Bengal Link for more opportunities.
Health and Safety Concerns Related to Direct Community Service during COVID-19
If you are considering on-site or direct experiences, please DO NOT volunteer in-person if any of the following apply to you:
If you currently are sick or feeling unwell or have been near someone who is sick
If you currently are in the high-risk category for COVID-19
If you or anyone in your household have traveled internationally in recent weeks
If you or anyone in your household have traveled to highly impacted areas of the United States in recent weeks
If you or anyone in your household have been in close contact with anyone who is confirmed to have COVID-19
If none of the conditions apply to you and you are comfortable volunteering, please contact the organization for more information on their specific policies and procedures related to the pandemic.
