When & Where
Boston University Community Service Center
The Community Service Center
The Community Service Center aims to provide the Boston University community with opportunities to address and improve the critical concerns of Greater Boston; to support and encourage students to make a difference; to serve as a vehicle for personal growth and leadership; to be active and responsible members in neighboring communities; to broaden the scope of the educational experience through service and reflection; and to serve Greater Boston in a meaningful and mutually beneficial way.
The Community Service Center (CSC), originally called “The League” was founded by a group of Boston University students in 1986. These students wanted to address the critical issues facing Boston and started several volunteer programs under the leadership of Marsh Chapel.
By 1989, The League had 17 different programs including FYSOP, The Youth Tutoring Program (now known as Afterschool), Alternative Spring Breaks and Student Food Rescue. Over the years, interest in volunteering continued to grow with programs like Alternative Winter Break and the AIDS Support and Advocacy Program (now known as Project Hope). The League was renamed The Community Service Center in 1991, and moved to its current location on the 4th floor of the George Sherman Union in 1998.
The Community Service Center remains committed to providing the Boston University Community with opportunities to address and improve critical concerns of Greater Boston and beyond. In 2011, the Community Service Center encompassed 4,500 volunteers in 13 programs and one-time events, completing 130,000 hours of service.
