Service Opportunities - Process for Volunteers

To receive credit and/or work release time for your service opportunity, the following process needs to be followed.

Student volunteers

  1. Complete the Pomeroy Volunteers form. This form will ask for your contact information, the type of work you are interested in, and if you would like to volunteer regularly with a particular organization. When the form is submitted, it will be forwarded to Campus Ministry. To learn more about the organizations, links to service opportunities may be found on the Service Opportunities page.
  2. Campus Ministry will follow up with you with the contact information for the organization.
  3. Once you have set a time and date with the organization to volunteer, you will be required to complete and turn in a Service Hours form  for tracking your hours to Campus Ministry. This information will be kept organized and tracked online in order to go on your transcript.
