Help make this year’s UK FUSION (For Unity and Service In Our Neighborhoods) a success! Help serve as a site advisor for students doing their volunteer project for the Lexington community on Monday, August 25, 2014. Led by the Center for Community Outreach, the FUSION team is asking for UK faculty and staff to volunteer to help organize the 1,000+ UK students serving at nearly 100 community and neighborhood organizations.
Each small group of student volunteers is led by one or two student site leaders and a site advisor. Site advisors are faculty or staff who help provide risk management, assist with group dynamics and serve as positive role models for the student volunteers.
Site advisors will work from 8:45 a.m. to around 3 p.m. on August 25th, although times may vary depending on specific sites. To sign up to volunteer as a site advisor follow these steps:
