What is volunteering?

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?”- Martin Luther King, Jr

Volunteering is the act of donating your time to help others and the ASU Department of Psychology has identified some great opportunities for students to participate in. One step in your career exploration is giving back and getting involved in the community so by volunteering your time you are making a lasting impact for these organizations that are in need of help. If you are interested in making a difference and giving back to the community, please fill out the Volunteer Interest Form to the left.

In the News

One of the best ways to learn if you should study psychology in college is to go and experience psychology in action. Carolyn Cavanaugh-Toft leads the Early Start Program in the Arizona State University Department of Psychology, a two-week intensive program that introduces students to psychology at ASU. “One place I wanted to introduce the students to is a place called Homeward Bound.”

Homeward Bound is an Arizona nonprofit that serves homeless families, providing training and housing to help the families get back on their feet. Each year Homeward Bound helps more than 130 families in the Phoenix area. Often these families include young children who are in a pivotal stage of early development.
