Volunteer Opportunities

Anyone from the community may volunteer at NCTC's mobile food pantries. Both food pantries are open to NCTC students, employees and the community at-large. Nobody is turned away - as they do not require proof of income. Both pantries will resume after NCTC reopens.

Students may also volunteer on an NCTC Service Learning Trip. In addition to volunteering, students get the opportunity to learn about various communities, enjoy the culture of the area and reflect on their visit. NCTC Service Learning trips promote teamwork and help build student's skill levels. These trips are not free, students are charged no more than $500 to help cover their expenses for the entire week. Volunteers stay in community shared buildings and on blow up mattresses or twin beds in their own sleeping bag. For more info, contact Daisy Garcia at dgarcia@nctc.edu
