Custom Serve Your City / Serve Your Campus Opportunities:

Would your PSU student group, organization or department be interested in serving the community together? Let us help! If you don't see a project in the list above that works for your group, our staff can provide servie project support and set up opportunities for you and your group to get involved in service here at Portland State and in the broader Portland community.    

We set up service experiences ranging from 2 hours to all day. Because we work closely with dozens of community partners, we can tailor the service experience to meet your group goals, but also a real community need!  

Examples of on-campus service experiences:

  • Projects for the Re-Use Room
  • Work in the PSU Orchard
  • Projects for the PSU Food Pantry
Examples of off-campus service experiences: 
  • Classroom aids for a day in the Kindergarten classes PSU sponsors at Alder Elementary School
  • Habitat for Humanity build day
  • Invasive species removal at Forest Park
There is a limited amount of funding available for travel for student Serve Your City days. Food will not be provided for these service opportunities.  


If you are interested and want to plan a time to discuss this, please fill out the Serve Your City Days Interest Form at least 4-6 weeks before you would like your service project to occur.

If you have any questions, please contact volunteer@pdx.edu.
