Volunteering at Seminole State College

Serving the community is an important component of the student experience at Seminole State College. Students can find service opportunities at each of the Seminole State campuses. Events are organized both at a college wide level and as campus-specific projects. Look at the schedules below to find events scheduled for your campus.

Service Fairs

Service fairs are organized at each Seminole State campus at the beginning of the Fall and Spring Terms. The fairs represent a great opportunity for student to learn about different service opportunities across Seminole County and in Central Florida in general.

Service Days

During the Fall, Spring and Summer terms, the Office of Student Life sponsors Service Days designed to give students the opportunity to volunteer and serve while helping to build a sense of community at Seminole State. Service Days allow students a chance to network with their peers and with local and national service agencies.

Students can find a schedule of all service events and RSVP on RaiderConnect.
