Grand Canyon University (GCU) is a private Christian university strongly committed to guiding students to become socially responsible, compassionate servant leaders by making an enduring impact on their local, national and global communities.
GCU offers students, staff and alumni an array of volunteer opportunities. Our community outreach and ministry programs provide training and guidance so you can use your unique talents to serve the Kingdom of God.
The time that I volunteered for Habitat for Humanity was one of my favorite memories of my time at GCU. A bunch of us students walked over to a neighborhood across the street and the people were so excited to see us, knowing we were going to help fix up their homes.
GCU’s Five-Point Plan
In 2015, GCU established an innovative five-point plan to help revitalize its West Phoenix neighborhood in partnership with private and public entities as well as the hands of our students. During your time at GCU, you can become part of the plan by volunteering your time and service for our campus neighbors.
I picked GCU because the light that the campus shines on the city of Phoenix is unlike any other university.
