Northeastern University: Center of Community Services

Become a Partner

Thank you for your interest in partnering through Service-Learning. Most of our partnerships are initiated through a Request for Partnerships (RFP) process prior to the semester. The purpose of the RFP process is to identify the needs of community-based organizations so that we can best connect them with faculty and courses within the Service-Learning Program.

We use an online portal to manage all RFP applications. If you submitted an application for Fall 2016, Spring 2017, or Fall 2017, you are able to clone your previous applications. We’ve created PDF and video user guides for your convenience (found below).

We are no longer accepting applications for Spring 2018. We will begin accepting applications for Fall 2018 in late-May/early June.
