Community Partners are encouraged to submit opportunities to be included in our volunteer service & community engagement opportunities database.  Students and the public use this database to find ways that can be involved in and support the local community, from one-time volunteer events to an ongoing service position. For assistance, please see this guide on how to add an opportunity using the online form below.

       Submit Engagement Opportunity

Please use this form if you are a nonprofit, local government agency, or campus-based organization (OSU department, sponsored student organization, etc.) seeking volunteers or participants in a civic engagement activity.

  • Complete all required fields (marked with an asterisk), knowing that the more details you provide the better matched your participants will be!

  • Use third person when completing the form. (e.g. "Community Engagement & Leadership is looking for" rather than "We are looking for...").

  • Please note that if a student with a disability contacts our office with interest in your opportunity and to request accommodations, we will reach out to you to work out all possible accommodations. Furthermore, opportunities posted via Community Engagement & Leadership should be welcoming and affirming to all students regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, age, ability, body image, socioeconomic status, marital status, veteran status, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, and political affiliations, etc. and uphold the OSU nondiscrimination policy.

Internships must provide a positive supervisory experience that encourages the professional, academic, and personal growth of the student and assist the student in developing and achieving personal learning objectives.
