The Office of Student Engagement offers a variety of opportunities to volunteer on both a large and small scale. Whether you are looking to serve with the local community or participate on a global service trip, there is a place for you! 

Upcoming UNA Events:

  • Lions Lend a Hand - Tuesday, August 21, 2018
    Lions Lend a Hand is one of UNA's largest days of giving back. This year, we are "going global" by packaging meals that will be distributed to a country in need of food assistance. Our goal is to package at least 40,000 meals, so we need all of the hands we can get! The first 250 volunteers that check in will receive a free Lions Lend a Hand t-shirt for participating. 

    WHEN: Tuesday, August 21, 2018
    WHERE: Coby Hall lawn
    CHECK IN begins at 10am. We anticipate the event to last no longer than 2-2.5 hours.
