Student Opportunities

Dear garden volunteers, 

The Institute for Sustainability is carefully following the news and official CSUN announcements regarding the spread of COVID-19. As you may already know, CSUN will transition to virtual and alternate modalities of learning following spring break, beginning on Monday, March 23 and continuing through April 19. Out of an abundance of caution, the Institute of Sustainability has decided to cancel the garden volunteer hours until further notice. If you have signed up to volunteer during the time period between March 16 through April 19th, you will receive a notice of cancellation. Any additional changes to campus operations will be updated on CSUN’s COVID-19 website.


Volunteer with the Institute for Sustainability 

Sign up for your spot by clicking on the schedule below. We will have volunteer spots until the end of the semester. Volunteer spots are posted 2 weeks in advance. If you can't find any available time slots, please check back in for additional opportunities every other week. You are required to bring your filled out liability waiver and timesheet to record your hours. You can find these documents in the links below.



 *If you are no longer able to attend a volunteer activity that you have previously registered for on please make sure to delete your registration. This allows other students to register for that space.

Required documents to volunteer with the Institute of Sustainability

Each student MUST complete the survey, print the waiver form, sign, date, and put your phone number. Leave the instructor's signature blank. If you are under the age of 18, you must have a parent/guardian signature. Deliver to our office, Sustainability Center (located between the USU and Redwood Hall), Room 103. If possible, please help us to continue our sustainable practices by printing out forms double-sided! The CSUN printers have this option available.

Service Learning

Students can only earn community service learning hours when they are enrolled in a class and the service activity is part of the course. Please visit the Office of Community Engagement website for more details.
