Demonstrating a Commitment to Social Impact
Volunteering & Community Service Opportunities
Dewey Smart is your source for ways to make a difference.
We not only help students earn hundreds of hours of opportunities at local, national, and international levels but also do so in ways that align with their college and career goals to impress college admissions committees.
Most Students Volunteer at Random
Engaging in Volunteering & Community Service is always the right thing to do! However, most students fail to link their social impact efforts with their overall college admissions strategy. This means they’re missing out on using their time and energy in positive ways that also develop skills or knowledge associated with their proposed major.

Students must combine their personal passions with Volunteering & Community Service opportunities in order to truly stand-out.
