Service Opportunities and Resources

Volunteering through service and outreach at the University of Florida or in the Gainesville community is an excellent way to help the community and meet new people. 

Resources:

The University of Florida Center for Leadership and Service

The UF Center for Leadership and Service provides structure and resources for all members of the UF community.  The office fosters lifelong service and civic participation by engaging the university with its greater community.  The CLS invites postdocs to take advantage of their services.
