Programs

UNLV offers students several ways to give back to the community. Below are the projects that are coordinated by UNLVolunteers. All of the projects are open to UNLV students, faculty, and staff. Beyond these projects there are numerous opportunities to volunteer in our community. Check out the service project calendar link on the right side of this page.

Alternative Breaks (AB) — What more worthwhile way to spend your spring break than with service? Each AB trip has a focus on a particular social issue, such as (but not limited to) poverty, education reform, refugee resettlement, health, and the environment. Students learn about the social issues and then perform weeklong projects with local nonprofit organizations.

Delivering and Serving Hope (DASH) — Help make, pack, and deliver peanut butter and jelly sandwich lunches to the homeless population at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. Open to all UNLV students, faculty, and staff. Select Fridays, 3 to 6:30 p.m. Transportation may be provided.
