Established in 2006, The Berkeley Project is the largest community service organization at UC Berkeley.
Each semester, we organize Berkeley Project Day, in which we recruit over 2,000 volunteers to work alongside community members in
From working at elementary schools to planting trees, our volunteers devote a
total of 12,000+ hours and save the City of Berkeley over $400,000 every year. Fully student run and not for profit, The Berkeley Project
