The Duke University Community Service Center

has information on a wide variety of opportunities for community involvement. Most positions require a weekly commitment of one to five hours.  Community partner organizations provide their own training and some require additional steps before scheduling volunteers.  For advice and information about these and other opportunities, email Domonique Redmond, Assistant Director of Programs, .

Before contacting our staff, it is helpful to have an idea of what you would like to get involved in.  To help you narrow things down, we suggest that you peruse our searchable database of opportunities to see what is listed and/or read through our list of community partners to find out the various categories of nonprofits that exist in the area and what they do.  This information can be found under the Get Involved tab at The Duke University Community Service Center site.  Students may also talk with area nonprofit organizations when they come to campus for the annual Volunteer Fair in September. Their office offers some signature programs that allow students to be involved on a short-term or long-term basis.  The most popular program is the America Reads and Counts tutoring program for elementary and middle school students attending schools within the Duke-Durham Neighborhood Partnership Program.  Another growing program is NC-ACTS! (North Carolina – Activating Citizens Through Service).  As a member of this program, you serve 300 hours in partnership with schools and community-based organizations in the areas of education, human needs/services, and volunteer recruitment/capacity building and receive an educational award of $1000 at the end of one year.
