ASU Cares Day - September 19

Recruitment for the fall begins in late August, continuing until all projects are filled or the day of the event. Teams are encouraged to remain active with their chosen agency throughout the year. 

NOTE: A team may opt to create its own project so long as it meets a demonstrated need within the community. Please discuss this with the ASU Cares Committee.

You may register as an individual or with an organization/group

For Nonprofit Agencies:

Nonprofit agencies are invited to submit proposals for short-term projects that would engage ASU and community volunteers in helping to meet the organization's mission.

ASU students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to sign up for a project that meets a community need. Teams will be formed and will travel to assigned work sites around the SLV. Clubs, sports teams, residence halls, classes, etc., may sign up as a group.
