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

We are currently accepting applications for two volunteer leadership positions!

CommServ Program Coordinators lead one of our 17 weekly community service programs in the Carlisle area. They coordinate volunteers and program activities and develop valuable leadership and programming skills. Complete the application here by Thursday, April 19 by 4pm. Please email commserv@dickinson.edu with any questions.

Service Trip Leaders are students who plan and facilitate one of our many service trips every year. Complete the application here by Friday, April 13 by 4pm. Please email servicetrips@dickinson.edu with any questions. 

Service Trips

Applications for service trips will be make available two months before each trip departs to allow for group preparation and fundraising. 

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 17 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.
