A major feature of Serve Rhode Island’s volunteer center activities is connecting nonprofits and individuals to meaningful volunteer opportunities across the state.
As the only statewide volunteer center, Serve Rhode Island’s Volunteer Portal is a tool to help individuals get engaged in their communities about issues they care about. In turn, nonprofits can promote their volunteer needs and events, in addition to soliciting inkind donations and posting employment opportunities.
Since January 2013, Serve Rhode Island has engaged 5,986 volunteers on its Volunteer Portal
1,498 active connections were made between volunteers and the 1092 volunteer opportunities
201 nonprofit organizations have utilized the system to recruit volunteers
