The mission of UK Service Corps is to connect UK students with sustained involvement opportunities that promote student learning and community development. UK student participants make a commitment to volunteer each week at the same volunteer site for an entire semester. UK Service Corps provides unique experiences for students to become immersed in the community they are serving, learn about the social issues relevant to their volunteer site, and reflect on their experiences throughout the semester. Students can choose from one of the volunteer sites below:
