Find a Volunteer Opportunity

Whether you attend a service day event, get involved with a service-based student organization, or participate in a civic designated course, there are many ways to volunteer during your time at the University of Miami! 

One of the easiest ways to search for opportunities taking place within South Florida is to check out the Volunteer Opportunities Database. This database has information for over 160+ local Community Partner agencies and is the easiest way for you to find a volunteer experience based on your interests and needs.

Guiding Principles for Service

Spectrum of Service

The Butler Center uses the "Spectrum of Service" model (see above) to illustrate how individuals develop into social change agents. The model demonstrates the process of growth individuals experience as they are exposed to volunteering and becoming more aware of and educated about societal issues. Individuals begin as "members" of society who are not concerned with a personal role in societal problems and ideally develop into "active citizens," or agents of change, who make the community a priority in their values and life choices.
