ServeRI, Rhode Island’s Commission for National and Community Service, is working to catalyze inclusive, equitable service opportunities to strengthen Rhode Island. By creating opportunities through AmeriCorps and volunteer programs for individuals of all ages, experiences, and abilities, participants can develop their civic leadership and build the foundation of their future careers. ServeRI helps Rhode Island communities build capacity to address unmet needs while placing hundreds of adults each year into paid AmeriCorps service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and make an immediate impact.

Administered by the Rhode Island Department of Education, ServeRI is the Governor-appointed Rhode Island Commission for National and Community Service, which awards AmeriCorps grants to organizations responding to local needs. Over the past 30 years, ServeRI has helped 8,300 Rhode Island residents serve approximately 12 million hours, along with tens of thousands of AmeriCorps Seniors. ServeRI AmeriCorps members have received $30 million in education scholarships as a service benefit to repay qualified student loans or pay for other education expenses.

ServeRI continues to seek organizations working towards the collective effort of volunteerism and service across the state.
