Southern Rhode Island Volunteers (SRIV) offers opportunities for ALL ages: children accompanying parents/guardians only, teens 13 plus years of age, adults 18-54 & seniors 55 plus years of age.

  • Volunteers aged 12 and under are welcome to accompany their grandparents or parents who are registered volunteers during their service.

  • For teens 13-17 years of age, SRIV offers limited volunteer opportunities for individuals who must meet school, civic or court mandated volunteer requirements. Parent/Guardian accompaniment may be required at certain site locations.

  • For adults 18 plus years of age, SRIV matches individual volunteer interests, skills, talents and time constraints to the most suitable and desired local volunteer opportunity for that volunteer. To learn more about our Retired Senior Volunteer Program click here.
