Community & Public Service Program Home
Welcome to the Community and Public Service Program! Community engagement in the United States, and indeed across the globe, is more important than ever. Social welfare retrenchments, globalization, economic insecurity and changing levels of social capital have challenged the most marginalized people to have their voices heard and needs met. Community engagement is one of the central mechanisms for fulfilling the promises of a democratic society.
You can register for RSSW community service courses for the Summer Term or the Fall Semester, either by volunteering in Albany or in your hometown, or volunteering virtually for RSSW credit. Some volunteer engagement opportunities may continue to be limited due to social distancing guidelines and community partner capacity, but we have a list of in-person and virtual volunteer options to fit your needs.
Do you want to register for an RSSW course? Fill out the forms and return to us for a permission number:
