Volunteer with Ohio State

Volunteer opportunities

Join thousands of other Buckeyes in giving back.

Perhaps you participated in Make a Difference Day or danced the night away at BuckeyeThon while you were a student. Now you and alumni everywhere can easily volunteer with Ohio State via the new Office of Volunteer Relations.

From ushering at the Wexner Center for the Arts to online career mentoring, you can learn about volunteer opportunities through our one-stop shop.

At, you’ll find a wide variety of opportunities searchable by keyword, location, or Ohio State department. Opportunities are available in Columbus, across Ohio, nationally and virtually. Some volunteer opportunities are ongoing and others are one-time commitments. New opportunities will be posted regularly, so create an account and sign up for opportunity alerts based on your interests.

Community members, fans and friends, as well as alumni, retirees, faculty and staff are welcome and encouraged to get involved with Ohio State.

Create an account, set up email alerts based on your interests and track your hours.

I volunteer because…

of pride in my community and to give back to others.
