Service Project

Help us help kids! We have partnered with Atkinson Academy, one of five West Louisville Signature Partnership schools.  This partnership allows UofL faculty, staff, and students to team up with other community partners to work together.  The goal is to help students perform to the best of their abilities and to reduce or eliminate barriers to learning in an effort to improve education attainment levels of community residences.

Here's where YOU come in! As the Class of 2021 at UofL, you have the ability to make an impact in the lives of young students now!
