Volunteer Opportunities

Welcome to the University Academy Volunteer Page! Your involvement in helping University Academy has a tremendous impact at our school. Volunteering is a fun and exciting way to meet people while getting involved with our school and students.

Food distribution volunteers are not needed at the time. However donations are welcome! Non perishable items, cleaning supplies, toilet tissue, paper towels, tooth brushes, tooth paste, washing detergent, fabric softener, bleach, etc. would greatly help our families in need.
