UNLVolunteers offers a range of programs for the UNLV community—some are recurring traditions and some are new as student coordinators bring their passions to life. Explore the basic descriptions below; for additional details, dates and registration, visit the Involvement Center in MyUNLV and see our UNLVolunteers page (must be a UNLV student/staff to access). Thank you for registering in advance so we can complete waivers, make requested accommodations, and order appropriate amounts of food/supplies to make projects successful.

General Meetings

Monthly meetings where you can meet people, get updates on upcoming events, enjoy snacks, and do a service project. See MyUNLV for current dates.

Service Day

Once a semester, 200-300 students serve with 10-15 local nonprofits. Food, t-shirts, service — don’t miss out on this great UNLV tradition! See MyUNLV for current dates.


This event happens toward the end of the month, typically two times (except on major holidays/recesses). Participants can make sack lunches on campus, deliver to the nonprofit as evening meal guests are leaving — or join for both making and delivery! See MyUNLV for current dates.

DASH Dinner Discussions

Come to this monthly casual dinner event where we invite a local nonprofit to share about their work. Explore how hunger and homelessness may impact different communities in different ways and how to be part of solutions. See MyUNLV for current dates and speakers.

Impact Area Programs

See MyUNLV for current events and dates.

  • Education & Youth: Covers a lot of territory, from public education to after school programs to college prep.
  • Environment: Includes green living but also protecting/restoring our outdoor wild and urban spaces.
  • Health: Can span a range of topics from preventative education to chronic illness and different ages of our population.
  • Hunger & Homelessness: Provides opportunities to serve in this area that are different from DASH.
  • General Programs: Our other 4 impact areas cannot cover all topics/issues, so this area could include any number of things from veterans’ issues to animals, refugee outreach and more.
