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.

Make a Difference Day — Celebrated in October each year, Make a Difference Day is the largest national day of service. The day empowers millions of Americans to unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service — Celebrated at UNLV in the Spring, MLK Day of Service answers Martin Luther King Jr.’s call for people from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
