LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville says it has acquired the ugive.org website that promotes volunteering among young people.
Ali Center officials said Wednesday the website aligns with the center's goals and one of the boxing great's core principles -- giving.
The website connects high school students with organizations looking for youth volunteers. It tracks students' volunteer hours and creates a printable "service resume" that shows when and where each student has volunteered.
The tool is free for nonprofits, schools and students.
The website's database includes about 57,000 student volunteers, 1,700 non-profits and 900 schools.
The Ali Center says its goal is to increase student volunteer participants on the site to 10 percent of all high school students in the U.S., which is about 1.4 million students.
