UNLVolunteers is a Registered Student Organization at UNLV supported by the office of Student Engagement & Diversity. The mission of UNLVolunteers is to: encourage civic engagement and positive social change by providing and promoting meaningful service opportunities for UNLV students, faculty, and staff. They do this by working to create a fun, social atmosphere for students to plan and participate in service projects centered on five impact areas: Hunger and Homelessness, Education and Youth, Environment, Health, and General Programs (since not every program falls under the other four areas).
There are several ways to get involved with UNLVolunteers:
- Volunteer for one or more events
- Event registration is on MyUNLV in the Involvement Center (search: UNLVolunteers)
- Become a member and attend at least 4 events a semester sponsored by UNLVolunteers; or
- Join the Executive Board as a Coordinator or Committee member (attend retreat once a semester, attend weekly meetings (80% of the meetings/semester), and help at 3 events/ semester).
