We are taking a new approach to registration by empowering you to choose your own service project from a list of options in the UC volunteer portal. At the registration page, you will have the option to select a project that appeals to you based on your interests and needs (type of project, organization name, location). Alternatively, you can choose the "REGISTER ME ANYWHERE" option. Once you find the right option for you, select “Respond” in the upper right-hand corner. If it's your first time using the UC volunteer portal, you will be prompted to establish a user profile first, then you can click through or return to this email to follow the link below and complete your registration. With an established user profile, you will be asked a few questions that are specific to UC Serves when you "Respond" to the project of your choice. Once you finish registration, you should get a confirmation email. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about the process!
BEFORE YOU REGISTER
As you look through the service sites, keep in mind that UC Serves is about making connections – meeting new people at the university and in the community. One of the most consistent messages we receive about UC Serves is how much people love meeting new colleagues. Please sign up based on the details of the project, the location, the organization – whatever speaks to you. We ask that you avoid signing up in groups based on offices. If you do not have a preference for where you serve or the type of work you do, register for the second option below, and you will be placed by our team and will receive confirmation of your location via email. Also, please check with your supervisor to ensure that they are aware of your participation. To help you select a project, we've created a Google Map with details about all the projects. You can also search and filter the projects in various ways within the UC volunteer portal.
