Community Partners

Community partners are co-educators of our students

Our Community Partners are co-educators of our students - imparting wisdom, skills, insight, and information about the culture of our community.

The Jan and Bud Richter Center for Community Engagement and Service-Learning is the central program at California State University, Fresno, charged with promoting the value of community service-learning to the students, staff and faculty.  The Richter Center works to connect the nonprofit community with service-oriented resources at the University.  Our goal is to provide outstanding learning experiences for our students and provide meaningful service to the community. Along with our community partners, we work toward creating a better community through service and learning.

The Richter Center can be a resource for community benefit organizations (CBOs) looking for one-time and short-term volunteers or for volunteers with a specific expertise looking for a long-term volunteer placement. Community agencies are encouraged to visit the HandsOn Central California website to post volunteer opportunities. Students can visit this site to search for volunteer placements. This resource is free of charge to CBOs and a valuable tool in recruiting university volunteers.
