OUR MISSION

 

BullSERVE ignites a shared passion for positive change by building a legacy of continuous service.

 

WHAT WE DO

 

AWARENESS- We promote all service opportunities offered by the CLCE to the USF student population. We also create awareness of various community issues through our "passion" projects.

 

COLLABORATION- We believe in collaborating with other CLCE student boards, university departments, and USF student organizations for the purpose of participating in joint volunteer projects. We will also be a member of the upcoming CLCE Coalition: USF student organizations promoting collaboration for positive social change on campus and in the community.

 

DEVELOPMENT- We assist in the development and sustainability of relationships between the CLCE and its community partners in the Tampa Bay area and beyond.

 

RECRUITMENT- We recruit students & student organizations by inviting them to register on Service Pro. We highlight all of the benefits and advertise the numerous volunteer projects placed in the Service Pro system.
