Students at Knox do volunteer work for a variety of reasons, all of which are supported by The Mark and Jeannette Kleine Center for Community Service. Some students use volunteer work to meet people and make connections in the community, helping them achieve social and personal goals. Other students connect their volunteer work to their academic pursuits, both to enhance their educational experience and to to satisfy specific experiential learning requirements of certain coursework.
