The Volunteer Center

As part of Campus Activities, the Volunteer Center is dedicated to promoting service within USC, the greater Los Angeles area, and the global community as a whole. The Volunteer Center’s programs are primarily student-run and student-led.

The Alternative Break program offers exciting opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to get involved with communities outside of USC during Winter and Spring Break. Our student coordinators lead alternative break trips both domestic and abroad. For additional questions regarding the Alternative Break program contact

The Friends and Neighbors Day program organizes various days for students to serve in the community as a Trojan Family. FND features local service projects throughout Los Angeles that can be accomplished in a few hours by groups of 10-50 students working together.
