Volunteers

ASU CoGen Service Academy

Be the bridge with this multigenerational volunteer opportunity

This is your opportunity to be part of a new kind of volunteer program where you can design your own service project and partner with another passionate individual from a different generation. Bridge the gaps, learn from each other, and celebrate your success together!

Be flexible

You and your partner decide how, when and where you do your work. The Academy term is for 5 months. You work together to define the deliverables and measure your success and outcomes.

Be creative

Each team selects their own service project. Focus on your passion, build your knowledge base, and make a difference in your community. Our program support is here to help you find the right agency or community for your project.

Be a learner

Discover the power of multi-generational work, and how we can collaborate to do more for our communities and embrace our differences. You will share ideas and resources, and find support, with a larger facilitated cohort group.
