We transform the lives of Rhode Islanders by increasing the number of people engaged in volunteer and service activities in their communities.


Serve Rhode Island is both the state's center for volunteerism and the state's Commission for National and Community Service, established in 1994 by the Rhode Island Legislature to administer the federally funded AmeriCorps program. As the main hub for volunteerism and service, Serve Rhode Island connects thousands of volunteers with opportunities to serve in hundreds of nonprofits and public agencies annually. Serve Rhode Island is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
