​How To Serve​

​​As a student at the University of Findlay there are numerous service opportunities available to you and resources available to help you become active in service.  There are one-time service opportunities and opportunities for you to serve at a nonprofit on an ongoing basis. Several student organizations incorporate service into their normal organization business. Please continue to explore the Office of Service and Community Engagement's website to help you with your service search. 

One-Time and Ongoing Service Opportunities

One-time service opportunities often include events and fundraisers for local non-profit organizations. The Office of Service and Community Engagement's staff sends a weekly email of one-time and ongoing service opportunities to any student, faculty, staff member, or community member who requests this email.  If you are interested in receiving these weekly emails, please send an email to volunteer@findlay.edu
