Around 60 percent of Dordt students are actively involved in volunteering activities, and 1 in 10 students are engaged in community-based service learning and practicum experiences as part of their required coursework.
COP (Community Outreach Program), PLIA (Putting Love Into Action), and AMOR (A Mission OutReach) are the largest volunteer opportunities offered at Dordt. These opportunities give students a chance to create change and be a blessing in their immediate communities, throughout the United States, and across the world.
Students are not limited to these activities—they find plenty of other ways to make a difference. Some are involved in prison ministry, mentoring at ATLAS (a local Christ-centered ministry), tutoring students in area elementary schools, and even serving with Habitat for Humanity or the Hope Food Pantry.
