Sign up for CEO Sponsored Service on OrgSync
OrgSync is a venue to connect students to a full scope of opportunities. In addition to serving as a communication center for events and activities it may be used to log your service hours and provide valuable information on your service experience. Consider joining the Community Engagement Office portal on OrgSync to sign up for a volunteer opportunity. If you sign up to participate in a service event using this method, your service will automatically be recorded. If you serve on your own, and would like your service to be recorded on you OrgSync account or you would like your service to count towards the University total hours of service, simply visit your OrgSync page, click "Involvement", then click the "Add Involvement Entry". You will need the name and e-mail address of the person at the service agency responsible for coordinating your service. For more information, visit this tutorial site.
