CCE also offers student employment and leadership opportunities, including co-op positions, van driving, Civic Influencers and Democracy Fellows, and a Lead Tutor program.

Find a Volunteer Opportunity

UC's Volunteer Portal is a great resource for finding volunteer opportunities across Cincinnati. UC affiliates are automatically set up with an account and can sign up using their 6+2. Students can find one-time volunteer needs, ongoing needs, or semester-long needs. Search by interest or cause to find an opportunity that fits your background, skills, or major. 

Community Partners 

The CCE can help community partners connect with UC student volunteers and other university resources. A great place for non-profit organizations to start to tap into UC talent and energy is to request an account on by completing our intake form. If your organization has opportunities for UC volunteers to support their neighbors, contact
