Our Community Partners are grouped into "service tracks," organized by topic or population served. If you wish to explore an issue - such as homelessness - or work with a certain population - say, younger ESL students - you can search the corresponding track and find the organizations operating within that area of service with which CNU has an ongoing relationship.
The Center has 10 Service Tracks:
Work alongside health providers, policy makers, and social services to support and improve quality of life for our community’s senior citizens. Visit with residents, advocate for rights, and provide therapy support for this important population.
Work in cultural arts centers, museums, and historical foundations to strengthen our community’s sense of beauty and place. These are important and often-neglected components of healthy cities and citizens.
Serve directly with relevant organizations to bring awareness, support, and societal change to issues facing our environment and the animal population.
Work with healthcare providers in free clinics, hospitals, or philanthropies devoted to specific health concerns and disease prevention, care, and recovery.
Help combat local poverty by serving with community partners that provide relief, rehabilitation, and development to individuals and families experiencing these difficulties.
Serve a population of citizens who are English as a Second Language (ESL) learners, many of whom are new to our country and community. We work with adults and young people alike to share our cultures, and provide assistance where appropriate.
Help prepare the future generation for lives of success and significance by serving as a mentor or tutor in our local schools.
Train and expand the capacity of a local agency to accomplish its community support mission, whether through disaster relief, military family services, or blood drives through the Red Cross.
Work alongside non-profits that advocate for women’s equality and advancement; also serve vulnerable populations of women and families transitioning out of abusive or difficult situations.
Be a mentor, coach, or tutor in with a local nonprofit community partner. These are primarily community-based organizations that serve and develop young people.
Community Partners can also be viewed alphabetically on the Center's mycnuengage.orgamp;#160;site. And, of course, CCE staff are happy to discuss tracks and the specific opportunities our Community Partners provide - just contact us!
