Service and Outreach

Pay It Forward has created a Socially Distant Service webpage in response to the current health crisis. If you are looking to volunteer consider the following, call ahead to see if they are accepting volunteers, practice social distancing, inquire about virtual volunteer roles, consider donating items or dollars instead of time.

In fulfillment of the university's mission, "education for citizenship," Ohio State students have numerous opportunities to connect with communities, engage in social justice issues, and develop skills for active citizenship. Student Activities offers a variety of programs designed to help students engage at a local, national, and global level.

Use the navigation tabs on the left to access programs specifically focused on service and outreach for individuals and organizations.

Our team of trained Pay It Forward members are excited to support you, your organization, department, or group on your service goals.

    SACG is a community garden with volunteering opportunities in gardening, harvesting food, and donating to food pantries that are committed to feeding low-income communities and people experiencing homelessness. As food pantry and volunteer coordinators, we organize groups of volunteers to come to the garden and help out! For the upcoming growing season, we need volunteers to help us maintain the food pantry plots and work with the community & pantries to deliver donated produce. We welcome all volunteers and provide a way to give back to our community, while keeping Columbus green. We also welcome other creative ideas for community integration, food security, and garden beautification!
