The first time I served meals for Grinnell College Students was on a dreary Saturday morning in April. My colleagues from the College’s Center for Careers, Life, and Service (CLS) and I delivered over 240 meals on that deserted and lonely campus. In my experience of uncertainty and change while navigating Grinnell, I was mesmerized by the new realities of an unknown world.
From local poverty alleviation organizations to schools and conservation groups, the city of Grinnell and surrounding communities are filled with people who welcome the help of Grinnell College volunteers.
Alumni of Grinnell’s First Year of College Program understand the true value of a liberal arts education.
