Honor. Serve. Unite.  

The September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance (9/11 Day), is a chance to help others in tribute to those killed and injured on September 11, 2001, first responders, and the countless others who serve to defend the nation’s freedom at home and around the globe.

September 11, 2021, is the 20th Anniversary of that tragic day. Join AmeriCorps and Cal Poly Pomona on 9/11 Day— step forward to serve in a remarkable spirit of unity, honor, and compassion. 

This year, the Center for Community Engagement is hosting its Fall Bronco Stampede of Service in partnership with L.A. Works, a nonprofit that implements community service projects in the greater LA area. The event is a multi-day, on-campus, First-Year Experience (FYE) service project that will be held from Tuesday, September 7th - Friday, September 10th to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of 9/11. This event brings together CPP students, staff, and faculty to serve local community partners: The Youth & Family Club of Pomona Valley; House of Ruth; Hope for Housing; UrbanMission/South Pomona Farm (SOPO) in coordination with LA Works.

You will be participating in an on-campus (1-hour) project-based activity. Here are links to the instructions for the activities (each day will be a different project): 

At the end of your project, please do not forget to complete our event survey to received your CCE socks! 

The event is open to CPP students, faculty, and staff. Space is limited. Register today!

Broncos remember volunteerism renews and strengthens communities, families, and ourselves. As more families are dealing with challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is imperative that we don’t turn inward, but instead create common cause.

We ask you to honor the victims and heroes of that day through acts of service that will recapture the spirit of unity that swept the nation in the wake of the tragedy 9/11. Broncos let us HONOR.SERVE.UNITE and volunteer with us for our Fall Bronco Stampede of Service!

Please do not attend the event if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or are under quarantine or isolations orders.

National Days of Service

 

MLK Day of Service is almost here – and Americans across the country are getting ready to honor the legacy of Dr. King. Are you ready to serve?

January 18, 2021, marks the 26th anniversary of the day of service. MLK Day is intended to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."

Honor Dr. King’s legacy all year. Pledge to serve in his honor throughout the year! No matter how you give back - big or small you are making a difference!

 Be sure to share your thoughts and photos from your volunteer service that day:

  • Tag @cppcee
  •  hashtag #MLKDay26

 

Virtual  MLK Day Tool Kit

Although we cannot come together for the traditional day of service in-person, we invite all Broncos to participate virtually to learn how you can continue Dr. King's legacy. You can have an at-home experience utilizing the resources below: 

  • L.A. Works is hosting a multi-platform event to encourage Dr. King's legacy of activism by participating virtually through virtual workshops and Minecraft March on Washington. View the calendar for event availability and registration. 
  • North Carolina State University is hosting The Story of the Virtual MLK Projectfor the first time, using advanced digital and audio technology, to provide an opportunity for scholars, students, and citizens to explore a variety of experiences (collective sound, listening, historical, virtual reality and simulation experiences). 

Cesar Chavez Day is a U.S. federal commemorative holiday, proclaimed by President Barack Obama in 2014. The holiday celebrates the birth and legacy of the civil rights and labor movement activist Cesar Chavez on March 31 every year.

It is commemorated to promote service to the community in honor of Cesar Chavez's life and work. Some state government offices, community colleges, libraries, and public schools are closed. Texas also recognizes the day, and it is an optional holiday in Arizona (official holiday in the city of Phoenix, Arizona) and Colorado. Americans are urged to "observe this day with appropriate service, community, and educational programs to honor Cesar Chavez's enduring legacy."

The Center for Community Engagement is promoting a digital celebration of Cesar Chavez Day, see above for options on how to celebrate virtually.

Are you looking to connect with your community? Here's an opportunity to learn about local organizations, build your network, and find local volunteer opportunities near you!

The CPP Virtual Volunteer Fair provided an opportunity for Cal Poly Pomona students, staff, and faculty to connect with volunteer organizations virtually to promote meaningful opportunities for volunteer service and sustain civic engagement in a virtual environment. 

During National Volunteer Week on April 18 - April 24, 2021, we celebrated service in partnership with the CSU system! This virtual event showcased local and regional nonprofits and community-based organizations representing diverse social impact areas—from housing, education, arts, food insecurity, forestry and children's services.
