On-Campus Transition (OCT) Program is in need of Volunteers: The On-Campus Transition (OCT) program is looking for individuals interested in volunteering/mentoring one hour
per week for a student in their program. Each student in the program has an intellectual disability, which puts them
at risk for poverty and not being able to have the choices we take for granted each day. The OCT is a unique program
for young adults with intellectual disabilities between the ages 18-25 who have strong desire to become independent
members of society. The program allows these students to audit UNF courses, work with peer mentors, develop job
skills, and be an integral part of college campus life in order to transition them into adulthood. Mentors will have a set
time and date during which they are volunteering with one of our students. During that time, they act as a fitness mentor,
social mentor, or academic mentor. It is an easy way to have a new experience with someone whose path you would
never cross on campus and make friendships that last forever. The OCT mission is to provide an informational learning opportunity, within an inclusive educational community, for young
adults with intellectual disabilities, university students, college educators, and community leaders. The OCT goal is to
create independent lifelong learners who are connected to their community. If interested, please call the OCT Volunteer Services at (904) 620.4803 or visit us in building 57, room 2800.
