Community Service

Volunteer Owls Project

Our mission is to provide community service and volunteer opportunities to the Oregon Tech students and community.

On these pages, you will find information for four different aspects of service:

  1. Volunteer Fairs
  2. Alternative Spring Break Service Trip
  3. Quarterly service days in our local community
  4. Ongoing opportunities for service & volunteerism

Ongoing Opportunities to Serve

We have found that many of our students have a desire to serve but don’t know how to identify opportunities, while many local organizations struggle to find volunteers. In order to help bridge this gap, we have created an online database of
volunteer opportunities in our community! This list will continue to be updated as we receive more registrations from
community agencies, so check back often!

V-Owl Service Days

One Saturday per quarter, students will have the chance to volunteer in a variety of local community service projects taking place throughout the morning in Klamath Falls. Come out and show your OWL colors with support to local community
organizations! A free t-shirt and lunch will be provided to participants back on campus following the completion of projects.

For more information contact Josie Hudspeth.

This year's dates:

January 20, 2014 - MLK Service Day

On January 20th, join Campus Life and the Diversity Center as they work together in making a difference throughout the community! Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'"

Oregon Tech Campus Clean Up

Come volunteer to give our own campus some tender loving care and improve the grounds with the Facilities Staff.

Contact Josie Hudspeth to sign up. 

Volunteer Fairs

During the Fall and Spring quarters, Campus Life will host a volunteer fair where community agencies will come to campus with information about service opportunities for students. This is a great chance to meet agency representatives in person and find a project that fits your personal interests and goals.

Check back soon for date of the next Volunteer Fair.

Alternative Break Service Trips

Each Spring Break, we take a group of students to participate in a Habitat for Humanity build for a multi-day project. Our first trip was Spring 2013, when we traveled to Sisters, Oregon and assisted in a remodeling project for a veteran. Each year we will choose a new location to support a Habitat build for those in need. We are planning to add an Alternative Summer Service Trip in 2015!

Participants are asked to contribute a small financial commitment to the trip, but the majority of costs are covered by Campus Life.
