VOLServe

The Center for Leadership and Service is excited to sponsor a monthly service series provided in partnership with various campus departments and community agencies. On these days, students will have the chance to network and interact with students, community members, and staff, while engaging in meaningful service and addressing community needs. Students are provided with transportation and are given an organized opportunity to serve the local community for an afternoon.These organized days of service will be led by a student leader who will engage the participants in a meaningful reflection to wrap up the afternoon.

Daily service opportunities can be found on our ‘Sign Up To Serve’ Calendar.

If you are a Community Partner, and wish to request student volunteers for any of the below ‘Service Series’, please fill out the request form located here: http://leadershipandservice.utk.edu/community-partners-for-service-series/
