UofL students log countless volunteer hours working at non-profits. They do it as part of their education, but the benefits are teaching them lessons for a lifetime.
During UofL's Day of Giving, you may support our Community Outreach initiatives. each dollar will be used wisely to support programs like:
Elevate Portland -- Launched in 2015, the Elevate Portland Elementary Initiative has quickly become a popular outreach project supporting one of Louisville's most disadvantaged schools.
Summer Accounting Camp -- Accounting Careers Awareness Program (ACAP) introduces high school students to accounting and related business fields through a free, four-day campus residency program that will explore the industry through workshops, group activities, and site visits to area businesses. Participants meet local business professionals who share their personal experiences and offer tips for success. No matter what career participants pursue, success in the workplace requires managing money and resources intelligently, applying critical thinking skills, communicating effectively, and maintaining high standards of professional ethics, skills ACAP addresses.
Thrivals -- In 2010, IdeaFestival added a program geared toward high school students called “Thrivals.” The brainchild of Nat Irvin II. “Thrivals” came from groundbreaking research he published in 2004. Irvin coined the term “thrivals” to describe a new demographic of forward-thinking African American youth with a global viewpoint.
