ServeUGA advances and promotes a culture of service at UGA. ServeUGA advances service by acting as a resource for the University of Georgia and Athens-Clarke County, empowering students to engage directly in the local community through service, education, and advocacy. ServeUGA promotes service by strengthening collaboration among UGA student organizations and connecting the student body with service-related resources and opportunities. ServeUGA is 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.
Serve UGA advances 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.
One time-volunteer opportunities include: Dawg Day of Service, Interfaith Day of Service, Homecoming Week of Service, Spring Week of Service, and awareness events.
Ongoing volunteering opportunities are available through ServeUGA's Serve Athens initiative. Through Serve Athens, ServeUGA partners with a small number of local non-profit organizations for reoccurring volunteering opportunities. Transportation is provided for students who participate.
ServeUGA promotes a culture of service on campus by sharing resources and providing opportunities for service-based organizations to collaborate, while also connecting students to service opportunities across UGA. To stay up to date on service opportunities offered across campus, join our listserv.
Serve it Forward Grant
ServeUGA's Serve It Forward Grant was created to help reduce financial barriers that may prevent non-ServeUGA organizations from serving the community. An individual organization may only receive funding once per semester with a $100 maximum allocation. If your application is approved, payment will come in the form of a reimbursement after receipts are received and processed. Funds are granted on a first come first served basis.

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.
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.
