Volunteerism – For Faculty

Through volunteerism efforts, the CCECC empowers students, faculty, and staff to engage in life-changing community transformation by contributing their time, talents, and skills to the region.  Collaboration between the CCECC and community partners builds regional capacity while developing active citizens and leaders.

The CCECC holds numerous events throughout the year.  Some recent events include: Play to Engage, Rock the Vote, MLK Week events including America’s Sunday Supper, Take Back the Night, Danville Civil Rights Tours, packing meals for local children with Harvest Pack, and many more.

T.R.U.T.H. Talks

T.R.U.T.H. Talks are designed after a national program to engage the campus and local communities on issues of diversity and inclusion of all types.  These forums, held once a month, provide a structured environment for all involved to voice concerns and praises about a variety of topics including the following: diversity, disability, higher education, policing, women’s history, and the LGBTQ+ community.
