COVID-19 Update | Working with Community Organizations

IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: The current Coronavirus outbreak has ongoing, direct consequences for both the operations and needs of many community organizations. In accordance with public health guidelines, most organizations are no longer able to accept on-site volunteers and many are unable to accommodate remote collaboration.

The default expectation at this time should be that organizations are only able to accept volunteers working remotely. If you are interested in supporting a community organization at this time, please refer to this list or this website from the South Bend city government to identify and contact a partner that may currently be able to work with you. Please note that these recommendations apply even if you are a student who is an active intern or have a placement at a community site. If you have concerns about a course-based placement, please contact your faculty supervisor.

We encourage all Notre Dame faculty, staff, and students to explore ways they can  partner with local organizations to effect positive impact in the South Bend area. Please note that current guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, local officials, and the University of Notre Dame require that all community engagement occur remotely. Current University policy asks students, faculty, and staff to limit off-campus travel whenever possible. In accordance with these guidelines:

DO NOT attempt to visit a community organization’s physical location at this time. University policies ask all students to limit off-campus travel whenever possible.

DO NOT attempt to visit a community organization’s physical location at any time if you are exhibiting any symptoms of the coronavirus.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this challenging, uncertain time.
