DC Students will be able to receive up to a maximum of two (2) general assembly credits this trimester by completing volunteer hours with one or more of our Parker Care Partners. Non DC Students will be entered for a gift card drawing. 


Students who sign up to volunteer at one of our Parker Care sites will receive a FREE Parker Cares T-shirt!

1. Sign up for a volunteer shift at a Parker Cares Site.

2. Pick up T-shirt at the Student Affairs Office, East Building, Suite 200.
