This website also has a volunteer section that provides information in multiple categories. Check out this section for urgent needs and a list of organizations that volunteer.

The ALIVE CCP connects WKU students and faculty with opportunities and resources for engaged scholarship that involve community-based research and service-learning.

Countless groups of students partner with community groups to address needs through The $100 Solution projects each semester.

Campus and community also meet annually to talk about pressing issues in the area and how they can work together in groups through the Campus & Community Network.

WKU Bonner Leaders

The Bonner Leader program at WKU is a program designed to assist students who have experience serving communities with the cost of their college education. WKU Bonner students dedicate ten hours a week (300 hours per academic year) of community service and training and enrichment, and they receive a partial tuition scholarship and/or Federal Work Study assignment from WKU. Bonner students are also eligible for an additional AmeriCorps education award to pay back school loans or save for future education costs.


There will be three opportunities this spring for students to learn more about the Bonner Leader program. The last workshop is a webinar on April 3rd.
