Partnering with non-profit organizations to address diverse urban challenges facing the Pacific Northwest in collaboration with Duke alumni.
In partnership with the DukeEngage Seattle Alumni Committee, DukeEngage students will volunteer in the non-profit sector with a variety of non-profit organizations. Students will serve at their volunteer placement 40 hours a week while contributing to the mission and needs of the organizations. There will be opportunities to be placed with organizations that promote and support projects related to: health and fitness, social justice, the environment, youth empowerment, food security and hunger, workforce development, minority advocacy, voting rights, disability rights and awareness, adoption and the foster care system, and civic engagement. Students will have an opportunity throughout the program to meet and interact with Duke alumni living in Seattle. Through service placements as well as immersive educational and cultural opportunities, students will gain an understanding of the host of unique issues related to the region.
