Volunteer

Volunteer and Get Involved – On Campus and Virtually

We need your help! At the heart of RIT's volunteer program is the spirit of giving – the "helper's high" when our alumni find a way to express their true altruistic nature. You can find your inspiration right here as you give your time and talent to your alma mater. On campus or close to home, we've got a great fit as you look for fulfilling volunteer opportunities. The commitment is small but the rewards are great.

Campus events are an excellent way to reconnect by volunteering as you greet alumni, provide information to guests new to campus, hand out programs, assist in welcome center registrations and much more. These volunteer roles may seem simple, but are very necessary and greatly appreciated as an integral piece of our major campus events. We couldn't do it without you and we'd rather do it with you!
