Berkeley College has expanded its signature volunteerism event for Berkeley College faculty, staff, alumni and students. Community Service Week builds on Berkeley’s long tradition of making a difference in the lives of others and contributing to the communities it serves. Extending the service from one day to one week expands the opportunities for volunteerism and increases the impact in the organizations served.
