The University of Virginia has many opportunities to support its mission through volunteerism. Please use the filters below to find an opportunity that’s right for you.
Burma Alumni Service Trip
The UVA Alumni & Parent Travel Program has partnered with a non-profit organization to create a unique service opportunity to Burma and provide much-needed basic educational, health and other services to a large orphanage and several villages in the poorest regions of the country. The healthcare service will be determined by the specialties of those who sign up for the trip. Every specialty is needed. If you are not in healthcare, you will help teach English in a primary school built with funds donated by UVA alumni travelers in a remote village. English is in their curriculum but they need to hear it spoken by native speakers to truly learn.
You may also help train nurses aides at a charity hospital on basic sanitation, clean water, dysentery, calories, vitamins, and other basic topics. Companions or spouses are welcome and may participate in service in various ways. We will do some sightseeing along the way and the option for an extension to Bagan to see the iconic Pagodas is available.
Young Alumni Council
Each spring, two new board members from the current fourth year undergraduate class, along with other alumni who have graduated in the last 12 years, are selected to serve on Young Alumni Council.
The Council seeks alumni who are passionate about working to optimize the post graduate experience for all young alumni, regardless of their involvement as students or their current engagement with the University as alumni.ContactYoung Alumni Council Website
Friday Forum Webinars
UVA alumni can pay it forward by sharing your expertise and experiences with others. Present a career, professional or personal development topic in a live, online webinar to a registered audience of alumni, students, and friends of the University. Webinars are also recorded for later viewing in the Alumni Career Services webinar library.
