Children, Teens and Adults
Southern Rhode Island Volunteers (SRIV) offers opportunities from children to seniors. Volunteers aged 12 and under are welcome to accompany their grandparents or parents who are registered volunteers during their service. For teens, SRIV offers limited volunteer opportunities for teens who must meet school, civic or court mandated volunteer requirements. A Parent/Guardian accompaniment may be required at certain site locations. For adults, SRIV matches individual’s volunteer interests, talents and time constraints to the suitable volunteer opportunities in the area.
