Health Considerations for the 2021-2022 year

  • When you volunteer, follow the organization's health and safety practices. If you find that the organization is not following Illinois' public health guidelines, please leave and tell the CSLV.
  • Remember to volunteer with organizations that are local to SIU Carbondale. Posts on the Saluki Volunteer Portal are all pre-approved. 
  • The CSLV will still accept paper forms, but we encourage you to use the digital form to document your work. (On the Saluki Volunteer Portal click on your photo, then Track Hours, then Add Hours.)
