About


Our Purpose


Through a variety of events and programs such as Knights Give Back and the Alternative Break Program, students gain valuable knowledge and experience, become connected to volunteer opportunities of their interest, and expand their community outreach.

Volunteer UCF provides service event consultations and recognizes student volunteers for their outstanding service. We work with over 200 community organizations and continue to expand our agency’s outreach.
