All Hands On Deck Volunteer Opportunities

Our team is stronger when we support one another’s program and initiatives. From volunteering an extra hour to help another department with a high volume event to regularly helping out key critical services, there are many ways you can make a difference for your team members and ensure our students have an incredible experience.



Career Showcase

Volunteers are needed to assist with many areas of employer and student services during the showcase, including but not limited to parking and directional support, line management, employer customer service and student support. All of these essential services are a crucial part of the employer and student experience at the Career Showcase. This year we are expecting 250+ companies on-site.


Gators Bounce Back

Join us for the second annual Gators Bounce Back event. This opportunity is aimed at helping students build resilience, work on failing forward, and embracing a growth mindset. One main way to get involved with this event and support students in “bouncing back” is to sign up to volunteer. If you have questions, please reach out to Jen Kennymore at

Housing Move-In

Move-in volunteers are comprised of students, faculty, and staff members of the University of Florida. As a volunteer you will serve the important role of greeting and welcoming our new and returning Gators and their families to campus; managing moving carts/dollies; and assisting with unloading cars and taking items to students' rooms.


Dean of Students Office

Looking to gain skills outside of your regular responsibilities? The Dean of Students Office has many opportunities to make an on-going impact in support of student success. You can volunteer to review Medical Petitions (approximately 15 min - 1 hour a week) and/or serve as Emergency Dean On Call (1 Week Shift a couple of weeks a year). Training is available for all of these opportunities.


Volunteer at the Pantry

The Hitchcock Field & Fork Pantry is calling for volunteers to support the Pantry’s daily operations. The Pantry offers bread, produce, meat, nonperishable foods, and personal hygiene items to UF students, staff, and faculty who are experiencing food insecurity. No verification of need is required to use the Pantry. Volunteer tasks include stocking shelves, repacking bulk items for distribution, and sorting items from the food bank delivery (bread, produce, and frozen meat). Please wear close-toed shoes when volunteering at the Pantry if you can.
