Do you have experience or an interest in marketing? Do you enjoy helping others, especially your fellow students? If so, we are looking for individuals to volunteer with Bulldog Basics!

Our marketing volunteer will be involved with promoting Bulldog Basics via social media and other pathways to UGA and the Athens community as a whole. If marketing isn’t your thing, we have plenty of other opportunities to volunteer and the time commitment would be less than an hour a week.
