Volunteer Opportunities

Throughout the year there are opportunities for faculty, staff and students to volunteer with First Year Initiatives. We welcome your participation. If we don't have anything coming up but you'd still like to be involved in supporting first year students and FYI programs, please don't hesitate to email us at firstyear@louisville.edu.

(Faculty, staff and graduate students who would like to volunteer during Welcome Week can fill out our volunteer form to be posted at a later date.)
