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.
Disclaimer: Volunteer UCF will often meet at the UCF Orlando Campus Lake Claire Pavilion before departing to the location where the service event will happen. At this meeting point participants can choose to offer a ride to other participants or can choose to accept such offers of a ride. VUCF does not prescreen drivers, and we do not vouch for their vehicles or driving abilities. Transportation to and from the event is arranged on your own and at your own risk. VUCF takes no responsibility with regard to the travel arrangements of participants.
