- Develop a sense of social and civic responsibility.
Examples of Volunteer Opportunities
Gwinnett Great Days of Service
Gwinnett Great Days of Service, created by the non-profit Gwinnett Coalition on Health and Human Services, improves health and human service needs throughout Gwinnett County. Grizzlies contribute to this community-wide event during Homecoming by working on GGC’s Microfarm.
Volunteer outdoor enthusiasts plant, weed and compost on the GGC Microfarm all year long. Established in 2013, this urban food garden donates all of its produce to local community members who face food-insecurities. The Office of Student Involvement and the Student Center is a major collaborator and endorser of programming at the farm.
GGC's partnership with Junior Achievement helps middle school students learn financial literacy at Gwinnett County's Discovery High School. This volunteer activity occurs monthly on Fridays.
Read Across America
In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday (early March), Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program for young students. GGC partners with Kids 'R' Kids and Sheltering Arms, early learning centers near campus, for this volunteer activity.
