The Volunteer Center works to match students with local nonprofit community partners and volunteer opportunities. If you are a RSO or nonprofit and have a need or a volunteer project, the Volunteer Center can connect you with volunteers to meet your goals in the different ways listed below.
Submit A Volunteer Project for FND or Trojans Serve
If you have a great idea for an engaging project that a group of USC students can work on together, then hosting a Friends and Neighbors Day (FND) or Trojans Serve service project may work well for you! The USC Volunteer Center provides the volunteers, the signup form, the transportation, or the space if applicable. You provide the group project supplies, background information, and supervision/training. FND community partners get featured/listed on our website and newsletter!
Friends and Neighbors Days (of service) occur once a month throughout the semester on a Saturday morning between 9am and 1pm. Hundreds of USC students sign up for service projects occurring throughout our local community. If the time frame of FND does not meet your needs, then Trojans Serve events are 2 or 3 times per month and dates/times are flexible.

Share A Volunteer Opportunity
If you have a long term service opportunity or a service project that you would like to share, then you can submit a request to send out a call for volunteers on our volunteer newsletter or social site. If you would like to submit a call for volunteers please email a logo or flyer, along with a 50-word summary, including contact information to ServeOn@usc.edu. Fundraiser events, fee-based programs outside of USC, or requests not related to service/volunteering will not be considered. There are also discipline-based service learning programs that may connect you with USC students for one or two semesters.
