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.

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 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.

Social Justice Awareness

Seminole State Volunteers is dedicated towards educating students on a variety of social justice issues through programs, committees, and on campus events. These social justice issues include:

  • Arts and culture, 
  • human rights,
  • education,
  • hunger and homelessness, 
  • and the environment. 

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.
