Wake Forest University is committed to giving back to the community by means of several Volunteer Programs available below:
The Corporate Volunteers Program
The Corporate Volunteers Program was created in 1999 through a collaborative partnership with the Greater Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce and Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. The objective of the program is to improve the performance of specifically identified students in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, so that each tutored child will be at or above the expected proficiency level by the end of the school year. To participate, please complete the Volunteer Commitment Form and forward to Jennifer Cobb.
WFU Office of Sustainability
Tending to the land at the Wake Forest Campus Garden can be a regular part of your routine. Come volunteer in the Campus Garden; students, faculty, staff, and community members are welcome. Volunteer hours are offered each week and can be found here.
United Way of Forsyth County
The United Way doesn’t just collect funds and then distribute the results. It assesses the needs of our community, both immediate and long-term, to determine how to best invest your contribution. That’s where your contribution to the United Way of Forsyth County makes a difference. The University received the Spirit of North Carolina Award for Campaign Excellence, given annually by the United Way of North Carolina. To give, advocate or volunteer, please click here or contact Dustie Lanier at 336-721-9319.
The Arts Council of Winston-Salem Forsyth County
Wake Forest staff and faculty have contributed nearly $28,000 in the 2012 annual campaign. In addition to providing annual operating support for artists and arts organizations, the Arts Council supports such projects as the “City of Arts and Innovation” branding campaign, as well as the ongoing operation of the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts. To donate or volunteer, visit the Arts Council website and see the six reasons to get involved.
Habitat for Humanity
Wake Forest University and Wake Forest Baptist Health have teamed up to sponsor a Habitat for Humanity build in Winston-Salem! To volunteer with a group or as an individual, visit the Professional Development Center to sign up.
