As BU Terriers, we pride ourselves on being ‘in service to the city’ of Boston – and the world. GDS brings together alumni, students, and staff to serve communities around the globe. Whether you’re in Thailand or Texas, still on Comm Ave or out in California, join us in making a difference.

Tell Your Story

GDS projects range far and wide encompassing environmental action, refugee assistance, youth mentoring, disaster relief, and much more. Service can happen any time, any place.

BU isn’t everywhere, but you are! Choose your own adventure or check out our online volunteer opportunities. No matter where you are, you can get involved!

We can’t do it alone. Work coordinated by alumni site leaders—from liaising with charitable organizations to communicating with other volunteers – is vital to our success!
