Work it Off Initiative

 


The “Work-it-Off” Initiative is a program brought to University of Arkansas students by the Transit & Parking Department and the Associated Student Government. This gives a student who has obtained a parking citation an alternative means to pay it through performing community service hours through the school’s Volunteer Action Center.

 Step 1: Go to uark.givepulse.com. Click “Log In” at the Top-Right Corner. Click “Log In via University of Arkansas” and type in your UARK Credentials.

Step 2: Sign up for, perform and log two hours (or more) of community service (GivePulse calls this “Impacts”).

Step 3: Once you have logged your Impacts, contact the organization you volunteered with in order to have them verify the hours you logged.  The Organization will need to verify those hours through their Agency account on Give Pulse.

Step 4: Once those hours are verified, print off the service log (click “Dashboard" at the top of the page, click “My Impacts” on the menu bar, and finally “Export Impacts”).  Attach the spreadsheet to this sheet, and bring to the Parking and Transit office with the originally issued ticket.
