Looking for ways to get involved in your community? GREAT!

Here is the best way to start:
1. Careers for the Common Good Fair– Held every Fall semester, this is a great event to stop by in order to meet local agencies in need of volunteers, interns, or even employees! It is a great way to network and learn how to be more engaged in the community.

2. Facebook – If you are on Facebook you should like URI Clearinghouse for Volunteers so that you can receive the most up to date volunteer needs! These are usually volunteer opportunities happening in the near future (usually within 10 days).

3. Visit RhodyNet to view long term and one-time volunteer needs! Log onto RhodyNet today to stay connected with volunteer opportunities.

4. Search for events and opportunities using one of the many search engines available online!
