Serve Athens

Volunteer group at the Food Bank of NE Georgia

What is Serve Athens?

Serve Athens, an initiative of ServeUGA, provides ongoing opportunities during the fall and spring semester for UGA students to meet community needs through service.

ServeUGA is currently partnering with eight local non-profit organizations: Action Ministries, Athens-Clarke County Animal Control, Brooklyn Cemetery, Extra Special People, Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, Interfaith Hospitality Network, Project Safe, and SHAARE. Transportation is provided for students who participate. See below to sign-up for current Serve Athens opportunities.

By participating in Serve Athens volunteer opportunities, we intend for our participants to be able to:

  • Analyze the impact their actions make on the local community through post-service reflection
  • Explain the mission of the community partner they are serving with by engaging in intentional service
  • Evaluate the relationship between UGA students and Athens community members by participating in direct service and engaging in critical dialogue
  • Understand the importance of serving alongside one another through collaborative service work with peers and community partners
