Opportunities with CSSS

Paid Leadership Positions

We hire every Spring for new Student Staff positions in the CSSS office, and every September for Montgomery Service Leaders. 

Volunteer Leadership Positions

We have multiple openings for CommServ Student Coordinators. Email commserv@dickinson.edu for more information! 

A new position in our office is the Service Ambassador. Service Ambassadors work to get first years and sophomores involved in service opportunities. Anyone from any class year is able to participate! Find the application here

In the Spring semester, we take applications for the positions of CommServ Coordinator and Service Trip Leader. In the meantime, volunteer with these programs! 

Service Trips

Applications for our five spring break service trips (Georgia, South Carolina, Detroit, West Virginia, and Texas) are now available! Come to an info session on November 30 or December 4 from 7-8pm in Althouse 110. Submit an online application here, or download a paper application and bring it to Landis House or email to servicetrips@dickinson.edu by the deadline. The online and paper applications are the same. 

Applications are due January 26 at 4:00pm.

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.
