Community Plunge is a great opportunity for first-year students to volunteer and connect with the Ithaca Community before the academic year begins. Participants are placed in teams and spend Friday and Saturday working with a variety of local service organizations around Ithaca.
Students can participate in a variety of projects that range from construction to tutoring. Past participants have built nature trails that are wheelchair accessible, painted at local agencies, assisted with summer camp programs, and prepared lunch for residents living in senior citizen facilities.
Plunge participants have the chance to:
- Explore the Ithaca community
- Build relationships with other first-year students
- Develop teamwork skills
- Have fun!
