Opportunities with CSSS

Paid Leadership Positions

Applications for our paid leadership positions as student staff are now closed. Every spring, we interview and hire students to work for our office. Students who participate in our office programs throughout the year are able to build a relationship with our current student staff and are more likely to be hired the following year!

Volunteer Leadership Positions

CommServ Coordinators needed! We are looking for leaders to help connect Dickinson students to the Carlisle community through regular service opportunities. Keep Hope, Carlisle Tutoring, and Habitat for Humanity are the programs that need coordinators. If you have any questions, email commserv@dickinson.edu. Apply here!

Interfaith Service Trip

Join us over Fall Pause, October 19-22,  in Philadelphia filled with service, meaningful conversation and interfaith exploration. We will be partnering with Interfaith Philadelphia to explore worship spaces, participate in community service and learn about diversity in Philadelphia. 

Service Trips

Service Trips are accepting applications to Hawaii for the Winter Break Service Trip. The service trip will take place from January 4 to January 13, 2018. Contact servicetrips@dickinson.edu after submitting your application for more information. Applications are due October 11 by 4:30pm. Click here for the online application. 

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers have endless opportunities to get involved with community service! For more information about these programs, contact the student leaders for each program, or csss@dickinson.edu! 

Our CommServ programs offer 16 different opportunities in a variety of organizations and themes, each occurring weekly.

Day of Service provides monthly one-day service opportunities for service in the Carlisle Community, and is perfect for those who have trouble finding time to volunteer regularly. 

Justice Served connects monthly single-day service events with discussions about deeper social injustices in our community. Our Fall 2017 theme is hunger awareness, where we will work with Rise Against Hunger in a meal packaging event in November.
