Participants can register to come and participate in a Day of Service and reflection on January 21st from 8:30am-1:00pm.
Key note speakers include Dr. Cecilia “CC” Suarez and Dr. Vincent Adejumo
If you have any questions or need any access accommodations for the day, please email the Brown Center for Leadership and Service at SAIBCLS@ufsa.ufl.edu
VOLUNTEERS: Meet at the Rion ballroom at 8:10 AM for regular check-in. Volunteering at the actual site will be from 10 AM-1PM.
Unfortunately, we do not have the availability to reserve/hold spots for student organizations as the registrations require a waiver form to participate which need to be completed on an individual basis. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that may cause! However, there is a plan to help you and your organization members get all signed up!
- Have your organization decide which location you want to volunteer with. Check the registration page and scroll to the bottom to read the site descriptions.
- If you have a service site in mind, go ahead and tell your members to register for that one. We recommend having everyone sign up all together, whether it be at an organization's meeting or coordinating a set time to ensure you get the spots you'd like.
- Each student will need to sign-off on the waiver and provide the information we need to have on file for them (i.e. their email address, name, etc.) individually. One point person cannot sign up or sign the waiver on behalf of the students in the organization.
This MLK 2019 Day of Service we are lucky to have 5 phenomenal community partners with us! Click the links on the names to find out more about each location! You can also find a brief description of these on our registration site.
