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.
