ServeUGA is a student organization composed of an executive board; general members called Service Ambassadors; and approximately 40 student organizations that embrace advocacy, philanthropy, or hands-on service as one of their primary purposes.
The mission of ServeUGA is to promote a culture of sustainable service among the student body by: fostering educational dialogue surrounding social issues; coordinating service events that engage students with the local Athens community; and serving as a resource to UGA student organizations that participate in service, education, and advocacy.
ServeUGA promotes a culture of service on campus by providing one-time and ongoing volunteer opportunities for students to make a positive impact in the local Athens-Clarke county community.
ServeUGA Service Ambassadors lead service experiences and serve as resources for their peers in order to make a positive impact on campus and in the community. Service Ambassadors meet weekly and serve year-long terms beginning in January and running through November. Applications for the 2020 cohort of ServeUGA Service Ambassadors will open in early November 2019.
If space is available during the fall semester, the executive board will extend an invitation to interested organizations to apply for membership in ServeUGA.
Membership in ServeUGA has many perks including: access to funding allocation, opportunities to collaborate with other service organizations on campus, marketing support for events through our listserv, access to an organization resource bank, access to resources in the Center for Leadership and Service, and direct advising support from the executive board and professional staff advisors.
