Organization Overview

We are the student center for service leadership and volunteerism here at Portland State University. We are most known for our Student Leaders for Service members, a group of 20 students that serve with community partners in Portland and work to connect the PSU community to volunteer opportunities. Additionally, we also facilitate monthly and annual days of service, plan several alternative break trips, and coordinate the Alder Elementary mentor program. If you're looking to volunteer, either to fulfill hours for a class, explore something you're passionate about, or just to meet people in a different setting, stop by our office or email us at
