Volunteer with AMSA

UGA AMSA organizes various non-clinical volunteering opportunities in the greater Athens area. Due to COVID, it is more difficult to find in person volunteering events but we will update members on any more available opportunities as they surface.

Clinical volunteering opportunities are also difficult to schedule in advance for large groups of people. For this reason, clinical volunteering opportunities are not scheduled through AMSA. Instead, we provide many references on our "Clinical Volunteering" page under the "Volunteer Information" page of the website. If you have any questions about clinical volunteering opportunities, please email us at ugaamsa@gmail.com. Otherwise, you can find our current volunteering opportunities and donation drives for the semester down below!

Please ONLY sign up if you know you can be there. Because in-person opportunities are limited in number (i.e. 5-10 people) due to COVID, please try not to fill in spots and fail to show up. We understand if things do come up though.

Project Safe

Project Safe volunteering consists of different shop maintenance activities including sorting clothes and items, sweeping, etc.

All Project Safe Volunteering Events are held anywhere from 11:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. on various Sunday's throughout the semester. Click here for our sign up document with relevant dates.


Serve by picking up food from various locations, sorting donations, creating snack bags, and distributing to camps around Athens. If you can’t volunteer in-person consider donating winter clothes, blankets, tarps, flashlights, etc. to their partner @clothing_forathens on Instagram!

The next Food4Lives volunteering event will be Sunday, February 7th at 1:00 p.m. Stay tuned for the shift sign up sheet on this page and our socials!
