Volunteer for course credit or assignment, to gain experience, or to serve the community. Whatever your purpose for volunteering may be, Career Services can help connect you to community service opportunities.
Service Learning and Field Study Programs
When you participate in Service Learning or a Field Study, you can apply what you learned in the classroom to the real world of work. While performing community service for a particular class or in a work environment directly related to your major, you also earn academic credit. Both academic-based volunteer opportunities require establishing learning objectives, an action plan to accomplish those objectives, and reflection about the experience.
Individual, Student Organizations, and Group Volunteers
Need help identifying community needs that best fit your interests so you can serve with a cause? Contact Career Services at 850-474-2254 to get started.
Complete 20 or more hours within a given semester in an unpaid position with a nonprofit organization to receive Community Service Recognition on your official transcript. Use JasonQuest to submit and track your community service hours.
Community Work Study Program
If you are a Federal Work Study student, you are allowed to work off-campus with local nonprofit organizations and receive financial aid work study funding for hours worked. Community Work Study students are encouraged to choose positions related to their major or interest area as a way to participate in real world work experiences.
