  • Involvement in a child's school
  • Tutoring and mentoring in schools (36 hours per year)
  • Volunteer activity in the schools or a community service organization

Volunteer Database

To encourage State employees to be engaged in their community, OSHR teamed up with the North Carolina State Employees Combined Campaign to create a volunteer database. Employees can search the list for volunteering opportunities that fits their interest and get involved with charity organizations that appeal to them.

In addition, there are special guidelines outlined at the end of this policy for Emergency Services, Blood and Bone Marrow Donorship and Disaster Service Volunteer with the American Red Cross. Click the button below to see the many community service opportunities available.
