About Serve Rhode Island
Rhode Island's Volunteer Center and State Commission for National and Community Service
Serve Rhode Island is the state's volunteer center and commission for national and community service that administers the AmeriCorps State programs. Serve Rhode Island connects thousands of volunteers to service opportunities in the community annually. Serve Rhode Island was established in 1994 to administer the AmeriCorps program of the federal government and presently administers 12 AmeriCorps State programs funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service. In 2012-13 Serve Rhode Island made grants totaling over $2 million in federal AmeriCorps funds to support the work of 280 AmeriCorps members assigned in Rhode Island working to meet pressing community needs. On January 1, 2009, the Volunteer Center of Rhode Island merged into
Serve Rhode Island, creating one statewide organization dedicated to
meeting the volunteer service needs of the Rhode Island community. Serve Rhode Island is located at 655 Broad Street, Suite 202, Providence, RI 02907.
