More information:

What is a typical project?

Typical projects vary from community partner to community partners. We ask that the job be safe and appropriate for our volunteers. Volunteer projects have included planting flower beds, cleaning up lake areas, helping in community gardens, running activities and games for children during carnivals, road clean ups, beautification projects, or working with animals. The volunteer opportunities are endless. Please contact us if you have any concerns about your project. leadandserve@unt.edu

How many volunteers can we request?

Community partners can request as many volunteers as needed. We ask for a minimum of 5, but the maximum can vary.

We do want our partners to note that we sometimes add a few more students over the maximum to aid if volunteers do not show. For example: If a community partner asks for 35 volunteers we will send 40.

What do we need to provide?

Our community partners must be able to provide supplies for their projects. Our volunteers would also appreciate an orientation over your agency and assigned project. It’s helpful if they are able to supply water and a bathroom for our volunteers.

Can I request a specific group?

If the opportunity is available we try our best to make those matches. Please contact us, and we will be happy to work with you.

We can’t host an event during Make a Difference Day can we have it on another day?

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee volunteers on other days other than Make a Difference Day. If you have an upcoming project let us know, and we will be more than happy to send your project out through our Volunteer Newsletter.
