What do volunteers do?

The volunteer program provides a structured opportunity for individuals to share their time and talents. Volunteers at NDUEC play a unique role in providing direct, one-on-one service to our clients or in assisting staff members with administrative support projects.

Our goal is to meet the needs of the people served in the community as well as those of the volunteers by delivering quality service that reflects the Notre Dame Urban Education Center's dedication to its mission.
