To provide more opportunities for Buckley Public Service Scholars to find appropriate skills trainings, CCPS hires UNC-CH graduate and professional students to offer skills trainings to undergraduate BPSS participants and be involved with the senior reflection review process each year. The application to become a 2019-2020 BPSS graduate assistant closed in September.
Since its founding in 1999, CCPS has been central to the University’s response and relief efforts in the aftermath of disasters in North Carolina, the nation and the world. CCPS serves as a hub for disaster relief information and other resources, including relief project grants.
To assist with finding individual volunteer opportunities, CCPS is maintaining a public service database to help share community-identified needs to the UNC community. Please visit the database to connect with ongoing volunteer opportunities.
