HandsOn Connect is an electronic database that promotes service opportunities for UGA students, faculty, and staff across campus and the Athens-Clarke County community. Volunteer Connect is a collaboration of The Center for Leadership and Service, The Office of Service-Learning, and Hands-On Northeast Georgia, and provides volunteer recruitment for over 100 agencies.
By creating a user profile, a UGA student, faculty, or staff member can explore various volunteer requests and sign up for service events. Once service is completed, hours can be logged for every project during your experience at The University of Georgia and the Athens community.
Student Organizations, University Offices, and Service-Learning Faculty Members can create organization profiles to publicize and/or recruit volunteers to either UGA only events or opportunities open to the public. Additionally, they can create private events only open to a select group of individuals and manage sign-ups and hours internally with ease. This is a great resource for student organizations that require service hours!
