Center for Community Engagement
Mercer co-sponsors Lights On After School each fall with Communities In Schools, where Mercer student organizations join with 150 public school students in after-school programs for fun, food, and games. Last year's event was held on October 23, 2014 at Riley and Union Elementary Schools.
Over 30 community organizations are represented at our annual volunteer fair where over 800 students have the opportunity to connect with a local organization that is looking for student volunteers. The Volunteer Fair is always held the first Friday of classes every fall. Click the link on the left side of the screen for more information.
LEAP (Local Engagement Against Poverty) has contributed over 10,000 of service since it began in 2010. Visit their website to learn more about this initiative.
