Students, faculty, staff, and administrators at Providence College.
Volunteer opportunities will be available from October through May for the next four years.
All schools are in Providence, and with the exception of Bishop McVinney, which is in lower South Providence, all are within three miles of campus. Two schools (St. Pius V and St. Augustine) are within walking distance.
That varies depending on the availability of the volunteer and the needs of the schools. Service hours can be one-time, weekly, monthly, or any other arrangement that works for the schools and volunteers.
Some examples include reading during reading week, service days, tutoring, mentoring, assistance with school athletic teams, assistance with after-school clubs and activities, or assisting at a school event.
The Office of Public Affairs and Community Relations will work with the Diocese of Providence Catholic School Office to identify volunteer opportunities within diocesan schools and match them with PC students, faculty, and staff who are able to volunteer.
Volunteers who want to tutor or who otherwise may be engaged with students on a one-to-one basis will need a background check. PC will cover the cost of background checks and assist with completing required paperwork.
Register at on-campus events throughout the year or by clicking on link above (keep checking as these will be updated regularly).
Due to the natural of our volunteering, everyone is required to get a background check. We'd like to make it easy for you by hosting an event on campus and covering the cost of processing fees. Please plan to attend one of the two events to complete your check and have a little food while you're there!
3 p.m. - 5 p.m. at Slavin 112 (Fishbowl)
