The Kleine Center for Community Service manages a wide range of engagement opportunities, including volunteer service, charitable activities, and community-based learning designed for the students, faculty, and staff of Knox College. Each term, the Kleine Center holds a Day of Service to connect the Knox community with our Galesburg community partners, sponsored by the Mary Filosa Brown Endowed Memorial Fund for Community Service. The Kleine Center for Community Service is part of the Division of Student Development.

Volunteer projects coordinated with the Kleine Center fall into two categories:

  • Short-term: This link brings you to the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services website. You need to register for an account (for fields asking for employment/position, use "volunteer" or "student"). Next, complete the training and on-line test and print your certificate.
  • Long-term: The Kleine Center collaborates with a local organization to identify and share resources to develop long-term and sometimes co-curricular projects. Examples of these types of partnerships include students' participation in the Nielson Elementary Reading Buddies program.
