Volunteer

A message from Columbus Gives Back:

In an effort to keep our volunteers, event leaders, and non-profit partners safe we ask that each volunteer or event leader sign up for no more than one event in a seven-day period, in order to limit the number of individuals you come into contact with if you are exposed to Covid-19. If you were exposed before or test positive after having participated in a CGB event, please contact the event leader or reach out to events@columbusgivesbacks.org so that we can best support contact tracing efforts.

Guidelines for our team and all volunteers are still in place. Please read each event description for more details. We are excited to keep giving back safely with you!

Social Twists will be making a return on April 1, 2021! Between April 1-30, Social Twists will be allowed for groups smaller than 10, outdoors and with no food or drink.

Columbus Gives Back makes volunteering fun, easy, and memorable! Simply sign up for any variety of events that interest you and fit your schedule – free of charge and ongoing commitment.

Our event leaders will provide a welcoming and engaging experience at each event. After every event, we’ll go out for food or drinks for a #socialtwist to get to know each other and celebrate our hard work.

Register here for the Spring into Service Raffle running in April and May! Registration is required and make sure you are checked in by an Event Leader to receive an entry!
