What We’re All About 


 The Impact Experience

Meet with an impact educator to explore your passions and connect them directly to a social topic & volunteer organization of your choosing.



Look deeply at the complexities our nonprofits are engaging with, and immerse yourself in critical thinking and education to propel you to thoughtful action.


Experience meaningful volunteerism with an impact educator that allows you to get involved and put your learning into action. Volunteer experiences will take place at one of Impact’s trusted and vetted community partners. All logistics and coordination will be handled by the Impact Center.


Reflect on your meaningful service experience by checking out assumptions and exploring take-aways. End with a call to action by igniting purpose and engaging in citizenship.
