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.

Looking for a service consultation? The Service Consultation Form is here for you! Our team of trained Pay It Forward members are excited to support you, your organization, department, or group on your service goals. Complete this form for general service inquiries and Pay It Forward will follow-up with you!
