Serve Rhode Island is the state’s premier resource for service and volunteerism. As the main hub for volunteerism and service, Serve Rhode Island connects thousands of volunteer with opportunities to serve in hundreds of nonprofits and schools annually.
Serve Rhode Island transforms the lives of Rhode Islanders by increasing the number of people engaged in volunteer and service activities in their communities. For over 40 years, The Volunteer Center of Rhode Island (VCRI) has been connecting people and opportunities for effective community service. On January 1, 2009, VCRI merged into Serve Rhode Island to become the Volunteer Center at Serve Rhode Island. This merge creates one statewide organization dedicated to meeting the volunteer service needs of the Rhode Island community.
