Service Opportunities

UAH provides service opportunities for students that promote development of life skills that prepares successful citizens of the world.

For a list of local contacts for volunteer opportunities click here.


VOLUNTEER CHARGERS is an organization of students at UAH that plan service opportunities that allow our students, faculty, and staff members to give back to the community. They also facilitate our annual Helping Hands for Huntsville event during the fall Week of Welcome and Can Creations during Homecoming week. Volunteer Chargers also plans our Alternative Fall and Spring Breaks, which provides a select number of students the opportunity to spend their breaks giving back to a community outside of Huntsville.
