Webster Works Worldwide (WWW) is coming soon. This year’s University-wide community service day is Wed., October 6.  Please join us in this very important Webster tradition.

St. Louis campus volunteers can sign up for projects online and extended campuses can get involved by contacting their local director.

On this day set aside for service, Webster students, staff, faculty and alumni around the globe extend helping hands to their local communities and nonprofit organizations. Projects include light construction work, landscaping, tutoring, fine arts projects, painting and working with children, seniors and animals.

In the past 15 years, over 20,000 Webster volunteers performed more than 91,000 hours of volunteer service throughout the United States and the world as part of this special event.

Faculty members are encouraged to include WWW in their syllabi and allow students to participate, either in a class project or a project of the student’s choosing. Through their participation, many volunteers share a feeling of renewed commitment to community service and often choose to continue volunteering throughout the year.
