Finding Opportunities

Learning to navigate a new website can be a daunting task, but we're here to help you learn how to find service opportunities on CougSync.

  • How to Find Opportunities on CougSync

    1. First, you will need to access the general WSU CougSync page at cougsync.wsu.edu. Sign in using your MyWSU network ID and password.
    2. From the homepage, select Service Opportunities. You can return to home at any time by clicking the cougar head in the upper left.
    3. Begin searching for projects and partners! Select the Service Opportunities tab to search for projects, and select the Partners tab to search for community partners. 
      • To find CCE-led projects, search for "CCE transportation provided".
      • To find projects or partners in your area, select your tab and search by city.
    4. If the community partner with whom you're working is not on CougSync, complete a Community Partner Request form, and we will get your partner on our database. Please review the What Can Be Tracked page to ensure your partner fits within the WSU guidelines for community partners.
