Volunteering is a great way to get involved. 
Here are some hints and contacts to get started.
If you are part of an organization that is looking for volunteers, email

You can go to to find volunteer organizations by category such as Animals/Wildlife, Environment, Community Services, Cultural/Entertainment, Disability, etc.

Another good site is Volunteer Match where you can search by city, zip code and keyword at

Lastly, Community Information and Referral is a non-profit organization with an online directory at Depending on a student's interest area, there is probably an organization that could match up and could use some help. A student will benefit most from community service when they have a passion or interest in that area.
