Easter at Orlando Day Nursery

Come out and join other students to make a difference in a young child's life! We will be spending time at Orlando Day Nursery to have some Easter-themed, fun-filled activities and help with any needed tutoring. The children range in age and love the interaction with UCF students! We will meet at the Lake Claire Pavilion (next to the kayak rentals) at 1:15pm for carpooling. We will be back on campus no later than 5:30pm. Please wear closed-toe shoes. There are required forms to be completed before attending the service event, so please check the 'Documents' tab on the left-hand side to download these forms (Orlando Day Nursery Volunteer Packet). You must get the forms notarized. You can find a notary either in the OSI office (please e-mail Ted Greenberg and set an appointment with him: Ted.Greenberg@ucf.edu) or the SGA office (please e-mail Sandi Briggs and set an appointment with her: Sandra.Briggs@ucf.edu), both of which are on the second floor of the student union. Student Legal Services is also available for a notarization. You must have a valid Florida ID with you at the time you are getting the forms notarized. When completed, simply bring the forms with you to the event. If you have volunteered at the site in the past year, you do not have to resubmit these forms. For more information and if you are able to drive, please email Zaid at vucf_youth@ucf.edu.
