Welcome Week Service Project

Volunteer with your fellow Bradley students on Monday, August 27, 2022 in the community from 8:30am – 12:30pm. This is a great way to get involved and learn about the numerous community organizations in the area. The first ever Welcome Week Service Project was held in August 2012. Since then over 2,000 students have volunteered, providing more than 6,000 hours of community service to the Peoria area. This program is made possible by the Bradley University Parents Association and CEFCU.
