Post-graduate volunteer programs offer people the opportunity to commit an extended period of time to serving communities in need.  From months to 2 years, you can volunteer your talents full time!


Begin your discernment of post-graduate volunteer opportunities by thinking about the following questions:

  • Why do I want to volunteer after I graduate? What motivates me?
  • Where do I want to volunteer?
  • What support will I need?



Post-grad volunteer programs abound! And many Loyola alumni/a can share with you their very positive experiences with various volunteer programs. There are a few resources to help you explore post-grad volunteer programs:

  • Every fall, we offer a post-graduate volunteer fair where you can meet representatives from different programs. 
  • Our office carries many materials from different programs for you to browse.
  • Want to have a representative come to talk from a particular program? Contact us.


Heading off to a full-time job or grad school after you graduate?  You can still serve!
