Healthcare and law are both services professions that require the ability to communicate and work well with others. In preparation for professional programs, it is important that you volunteer within the community to demonstrate your passion for helping others. Service will also allow you to strengthen your interpersonal skills, leadership skills, and challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone. You will learn more about others, yourself, and hopefully find connections between these activities and your intended future profession.
The Volunteer & Service-Learning Center at ECU works with a variety of community agencies to provide opportunities for service to our students. We have compiled a list that we feel are most relevant to our pre-professional students.
