The Jones Center Ambassadors (JCAs) are a group of student leadership and service educators dedicated to serving the campus and community. They work to connect fellow students to leadership and service experiences.
Looking to do service with your organization or group? Our Jones Center Ambassadors will create a tailored service experience for your UT group/academic class based on your group’s availability, interests, and size.
The Jones Center for Leadership & Service needs at least two weeks to plan and prepare for a ‘service request’. If you have an urgent last minute request for a program or service experience, please do not complete these forms. Instead, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office directly at 865-974-1039 and we will try our best to accommodate your request.
You can submit a service request through our Service Request Form.
If you are looking to do service individually or don’t have a specific time in mind, you can always visit our new community engagement platform, Serve UTK, to find volunteer opportunities!
Note: If you are a community partner or agency and you have an upcoming service event, you can find more information about how to do so on our partnership opportunities page.
The Jones Center Ambassadors (JCAs) present programs to hundreds of students each year on a variety of topics. The programs we offer are:
