DUPCC after volunteering at Ronald Mcdonald House


Community Service

Members of the DU Peace Corps community continue to take part in service activities in the United States. Every quarter, the community works on a selected project in the Denver area.


In winter 2012, volunteers went to Ronald McDonald House and cooked dinner for the visitors there.

Through the auspices of Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, the DUPCC also helped with trail renewal and maintenance in the park in 2012.

In fall 2012, volunteers dedicated time to Peace Jam, a youth advocacy organization with the goal of instilling leadership skills in underprivileged youth. Volunteers helped out with registration, crowd control, answering questions and ushering.

Winter 2013

In winter 2013, volunteers will work alongside others for Habitat for Humanity, which is a national organization that builds houses for people in need. The Peace Corps community will participate in one ReStore project and one building project in winter 2013.

Spring 2013

Volunteers will will work with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado as they did last year. It is an organization whose mission is to encourage people to become active stewards of Colorado's natural resources. The DU Peace Corps community plans on participating in a spring 2014 forest protection camping trip.


Returned volunteer fellows at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies also take part in a service-related project through the practicum. The practicum takes students to organizations such as the Africa Community Center, Project Education Sudan and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
