The next CSOF will be held on:
Wednesday, September 11, 2013

* To get to Sayles Hall, walk under the Faunce Arch at the intersection of Brown and Waterman Streets. Sayles Hall is the second large building on your left.
In addition to the 20+ student-led community programs at the Swearer Center, we coordinate volunteer opportunities for students interested in community work with local agencies.
Twice a year - once in the fall, and again in the spring - the Swearer Center organizes a Community Service Opportunities Fair for students, Swearer programs, and local nonprofits and community agencies to connect with one another.
To see a list of participating agencies and student groups from last year's fair, download the PDF below.
For Community Agencies
We welcome local nonprofits to recruit Brown students seeking volunteer or paid opportunities in the greater Providence community.
Please register online by noon on Friday, September 6th to reserve a table and post a brief description of your available opportunities. We encourage you to bring program signage and materials, sign-up sheets, and candy (!). If you can’t attend the CSOF but would still like to recruit Brown students, you can use the online form to register your opportunity; a directory of these current opportunities will be made available to Brown students.
You can also reach Brown students throughout the academic year in the Swearer Center’s weekly e-newsletter Bulletin. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide a brief description of the opportunity or event, any special requirements, and contact information for students to follow up.
If you have paid public interest positions - part-time or full-time, permanent or temporary - that you wish to publicize, our Rhode Island Community Jobs listserv reaches more than 10,000 subscribers (not just Brown students) and is free of charge.
