If you completed volunteer hours on your own (not affiliated with a UCF organization), you will be responsible for tracking your hours on Knight Connect. We’ve created a reference page (liked here) to help students understand how to track their volunteer hours on Knightconnect. If you have any questions about this process, please contact email@example.com.
VCE is unable to facilitate background checks on behalf of community organizations. However, if your organization runs internal background checks, or uses a third-party entity, we can communicate this requirement to volunteers before committing to the opportunity.
VCE works with a variety of community partners, social issues, and opportunities throughout Central Florida. To get a good idea of our projects and partnerships, we encourage you to look at Knightconnect to review some of our upcoming and past opportunities!
Our VCE pro-staff team is excited to introduce the RSO Service Council in the Fall of 2023. The goal of this council is to support student leaders who oversee these organizations while providing additional opportunities for collaboration, resource sharing, and professional development.
We are currently seeking organizational leaders to join this council. Qualified council members will lead service-based organizations (or, organizations that have volunteerism and community engagement at the core of their organization’s mission). In the first year, council meetings will be run by the Volunteerism and Community Engagement professional staff. Throughout the year, we’ll identify 2 council members to serve as the co-chairs of the council. The council will meet 3 times a semester and will focus meetings on resource sharing and collaboration.
If you are interested in joining this council, please reach out to Amanda Dever (firstname.lastname@example.org) and fill out our interest form here. We look forward to collaborating with you!
Our Community Connector program is designed to work with students who want to complete on-going volunteer work with a community partner. We think this program is perfect for students who want to volunteer consistently while also benefiting from support from our office. We encourage you to sign up for a Community Connectors consultation by clicking here!
We love helping students find connections between their professional interests and community engagement. Depending on your major, we can likely connect you with meaningful volunteer opportunities that will help you along your professional path. We encourage you to meet with our Community Connector team. You can schedule an appointment here!
No, VCE does not currently offer transportation to all our events. We offer transportation to most of our big days of service (including, Knights Give Back, Pegasus Palooza Day of Service, MLK Day of Service, and Spring into Service), but we do not offer transportation to our smaller events. Sometimes, participants within these programs carpool to these projects, but that is organized by the students individually. VCE is not responsible for organizing carpooling to events.
Yes! VCE offers a variety of events, including educational events. You can check out our Knightconnect page to learn more about these upcoming programs.
