How do I become one of Victor’s Volunteers?

The Northern Kentucky Leadership Institute wants to recognize all of the service that you give to the campus and local community!   The program is called “Victor’s Volunteers.”  The program is very simple and easy!  Basically, any student who participates in at least 25 hours of community service will receive service certification from the university.  This is a great way to receive recognition for your work and build your resume!  A special reception will be held for all of the Victors Volunteers in April.  


Sign Up!
Please request to join the Community Service organization in OrgSync by visiting www.nku.orgsync.com  . Registering does not mean that you are obligated to finish the program. You can keep track of your progress and receive attendance updates through OrgSync.
