Volunteer and Service Learning

Are you interested in high impact activities that make a difference? If so, CSTEP offers a variety of community service and service learning activities including the following:

The CSTEP Annual Day of Service

CSTEP students visit local high schools in the Buffalo Public School System. Several panels are constructed to allow CSTEP students to share their collegiate experiences with students in their classrooms. This serves as a vehicle to give students from targeted high schools “college knowledge” while also introducing them to STEM fields and the licensed professions.

Brush Up Buffalo

CSTEP students team up with Brush up Buffalo (BUB), an all volunteer, not for profit organization that works in diverse areas of the City of Buffalo to revitalize neighborhoods and build community pride. Each year, BUB selects a neighborhood cluster and assigns teams of volunteers to paint houses in that particular neighborhood for one day. The goal is to positively impact and beautify that neighborhood.

CSTEP Shadow Day

CSTEP students serve as mentors to high school students enrolled in the Science Technology Entry Program (STEP). As mentors, CSTEP students allow STEP students to “shadow” them by attending classes with them. STEP students are allowed to get a glimpse of what college classes are like.
