Elon Volunteers! (EV!) exists to provide all members of the Elon University campus the opportunity to develop an ethic of service by connecting campus and community through service experiences.
EV! is Elon’s hub for service opportunities on campus, providing opportunities for Elon students to engage in service through regular programs, one-time events, and Alternative Breaks. EV! is student-run and student-led, with over 140 student leaders coordinating a wide variety of programs and opportunities.
Student leaders are selected for open positions in November and March each year. Visit our hiring page for more information about how to apply for open leadership positions.
