Student Volunteerism and Community Engagement
The Office of Student Volunteerism and Community Engagement provides opportunities for student learning and development through civic and community programming and engagement.
We support service and volunteerism across the campus, in the local community, in the Rochester / Buffalo region, and throughout the United States. We foster relationships between SUNY Geneseo and the community, increase awareness and of society's needs, and work to address pressing issues through volunteerism and service.

You can find an internship, volunteer at a one time event, or establish a long term service experience - you tell us what you are looking for and we'll match you with a great opportunity!
