Walden Change Action Network (WeCAN) User Guide

Powered through the online platform GivePulse, our Walden Change Action Network (WeCAN) is our new university-wide tool designed to empower us to create connections across disciplines and groups around our university to collaborate for social change projects, research, and service.  With this new collaborative platform, the possibilities for impact are endless!

Our soft launch of this platform comes with our 14th annual Global Days of Service (GDS) in 2019, and will be our way to track and measure our collective impact across the world.  We will be able to use WeCAN to submit completed service projects, create service events and recruit volunteers, and search for posted events in your community.


SEARCH for a service event posted near you by looking through the list at the bottom of the page.

  • You can search the list by typing your location in the search box
  • Select the globe on the right of Events to search using the map function


SUBMIT your completed service hours/project by selecting Add Impact at the top right of the Global Days of Service page and complete the list of questions. Your project will be reviewed for verification.  You will receive notification via email if there are questions, concerns, or when your impact has been verified.


CREATE and post a group service project and recruit volunteers by selecting Add Event at the top right of this page and enter in all your project information, which will be sent for approval prior to publishing. Once published, people will be able to search and register to join.
