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 collegewide level and as campus-specific projects. Look at the schedules below to find events scheduled for your campus.

Seminole State Volunteers Leadership Team

Are you interested in organizing service events at Seminole State College? Do you have a passion for volunteer work? Do you want to develop your leadership skills while making a difference in your community?

Then join the Seminole State Volunteers Leadership Team. We are always looking for dedicated individuals willing to develop themselves by helping out in the community.

If you're interested in being part of the group that organizes the events or if all you want to do is help out, contact the Seminole State Volunteers Leadership Team adviser at your campus:

Service Fairs

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

Volunteer Interest Meetings

Volunteer Interest Meetings will be held at each campus at the beginning of each month during the Fall and Spring terms. The purpose of these meetings is to provide students with a schedule of events to which they can come and get firsthand information regarding service events. At these meetings, students can also bring up ideas regarding new service projects for which they would like to volunteer. Come back and visit this page later on for updated information regarding dates and times, or join the Volunteers Information Network by completing the Volunteers' Interest Form located at the bottom of this page.

Service Days

During the Fall and Spring 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 on the table below, and if they are interested in being part of the Volunteers Information Network, they can complete the Volunteers' Interest Form, located at the bottom of this page.

Theme Months/Events

Throughout the year, Seminole State Student Life sponsors theme months and events during which Seminole State students are encouraged to support a worthy national or local cause or agency. Some example themes include clothing drives, food drives, AIDS and breast cancer awareness drives, and so on. Students interested in getting information about these or any other volunteer events can complete the Volunteers' Interest Form, located at the bottom of this page.
