COMMUNITY SERVICE

Courtesy of our CHAP committee

The value of volunteering is much deeper, fulfilling and important in contributing to a healthy and vibrant community than money could ever measure. We believe that community outreach is important because it creates a meaningful bridge between students and the members of the public.


The WCCS wants to inspire students and chiropractors to embrace opportunities that make a positive impact in their communities, both on a personal and professional level.


Please get in touch if you would like to share community outreach activities that you have experienced with your chapter so that we can inspire each other even more (chap@wccsworldwide.org).
