This is your chance to make a difference for our beautiful land, meet new faces, and get in touch with nature! Keep in mind that we will be working outside, so old & comfortable clothing, closed-toe shoes, and a water bottle (reusable, if you have one) are advised! We will meet in front of the CFE Arena. See you there! Please contact Vy at vucfenvironment@ucf.edu if you have any questions. *Volunteer UCF supports a variety of community organizations who rely on volunteers to impact their success.

Bithlo GED Program

United Global Outreach (UGO) is very excited to be providing GED Classes with Orange County Public Schools every Wednesday evening from 6:00-8:00pm at Transformation Village. Bithlo residents of all ages and backgrounds are enrolled in these classes, and UGO is in need of UCF volunteers to help guarantee their success. Based on a person’s past experience, the journey to earn a GED can be an easy one, or a challenging one. Volunteers are expected to not only assist GED students in their studying but to also provide them with moral support to move through the program and succeed. Through working with GED students, UGO volunteers will build strong relationships with GED students and help keep them focused on the coursework and on the ultimate goal of earning their GED. We will meet at the Lake Claire Pavilion at 5:15 pm to carpool and return to campus at 8:30 pm. If you have any further questions, contact Ariadna Santos at vucfeducation@ucf.edu
