Do you want to volunteer? Have you had trouble finding service hours? Look no further – Cougar House is here to help! 

What is it? 

Cougar House is an outlet to find organizations that need YOU! Our bulletin board compiles information about opportunities to serve. It was made by students for students.

Why “Cougar House”?

Unlike the House system where students compete, Cougar House represents unity through service. Everyone wins when students reach out and make a difference in their community. 


The bulletin board is next to room 501. A website is coming later this semester!
Have you had a positive experience volunteering recently? Let us know about the organization! Fill out this form or get in touch through email:
