Volunteer Opportunities for Psychology Students

The Mt. Pleasant area offers a number of volunteer opportunities for psychology students.  Volunteering offers a chance to help others, explore your interests, gain valuable educational or job related experience, grow as a person, and increase your competitiveness as a job applicant.  Moreover, some graduate program admissions committees consider volunteer experience when evaluating applications.  Opportunities are available to work with all age groups.  Examples include the following:

Adult Literacy Tutor Friendly Visitor for Seniors
After School Tutor Big Brother Big Sister
Crisis Intervention After School Mentoring Program
Crisis Phone Line Worker Peer Advocate for Healthy Living


The primary resource for students interested in volunteering is The Volunteer Center at CMU.  The Volunteer Center compiles a comprehensive list of area volunteer opportunities so that students can find a match for their interests and skills.  Sign up on line and search for opportunities that appeal to you at www.stulife.cmich.edu/volunteer/ or visit them on campus at the following address:
