Community Service offers CCRI students the opportunity to serve on a volunteer basis addressing Rhode Island's educational and human needs in communities throughout Rhode Island and that are adjacent to the four main campuses in Lincoln, Providence, Warwick, and Newport County.
We publish a Volunteer Agency Guide that list over 100 non-profit agencies throughout RI. We help place students in non-profit agency sites who are looking for student volunteers. We also assist clubs and organizations on campus who are looking to fund raise for a special cause by partnering them with an agency in need. We collaborate with non-profit agencies every year for CCRI's Annual Community Service Day, during All College Week, by contributing to surrounding communities in need.
Develop Leadership skills and styles, enhance a resume or transcript to a 4-year college, and gain great networking opportunities. Receive extra credit through your class curriculum, if it is part of a Service requirement. Community Service is a great tool used to support student growth as successful leaders in the community.
