The College of Staten Island is proud to be a part of the inaugural College Challenge, a NYC Service initiative that will promote service and volunteerism at CSI and in New York City. Our aim is to achieve two overarching goals: make our city the easiest place in the world to volunteer and set a new standard for how college communities can tap the power of their people to tackle our community’s most pressing challenges. In competition against 17 other NYC Colleges and Universities to see which college community volunteers the most, CSI will win the College Challenge by mobilizing our students, faculty, and staff in an effort to impact our City’s most underserved citizens and communities.

Are you up for the Challenge??

Use your time, passion, skills, and willingness to help address New York City’s most pressing needs and make a difference. Whether you’re a student or a faculty or staff member, your skills and energy are vital to making a meaningful impact in the five boroughs of New York City and establishing CSI as the most socially responsible school in the City. If you are interested in volunteering or are currently volunteering for any non-profit organization, school, hospital, group, fundraiser, etc., we want and need to know about it. Please contact Robert King Kee from the Office of Student Life at 718.982.3119 and let us know.

Need Incentive?

In addition to the bragging rights as New York City’s top service college and the personal satisfaction of giving back to our community, the top ten CSI student volunteers who log the most service hours will be awarded one of many prizes including an IPOD Nano, CSI Sweatshirts, two pairs of tickets to CFA’s Night of New York Comedy, and many more prizes. The top ten student volunteers throughout all of the colleges will have the opportunity to intern with the Mayor’s Office this summer in whatever their field of interest.
