The Office of Volunteer Opportunities is geared towards keeping all University of Washington students informed of the new ASUW volunteer opportunities available on campus. OVO’s goal is to help students stay up to date on all the ways to get involved in ASUW, to assist students in their interests, provide internships for students so they can gain valuable experience, and help students utilize the ASUW.

The Board of Directors approved OVO’s creation in the spring of 2012 to begin in the fall of 2012. For its first and second years OVO had two employees in the office; the Director and the Ambassadors Program Coordinator. The Program Coordinator worked only in fall quarter to facilitate the implementation of the Ambassadors program and had minimal involvement in the rest of the functions carried out by the OVO Director.
In the winter of 2014 the Board of Directors created a Review Group to investigate the challenges and successes of the Office after its first year and a half of existence. This Review Group was chaired by the Vice President, and made up of the OVO Director and Ambassadors Program Coordinator, with the Personnel and Finance and Budget Directors serving as ex-officiomembers. This Review Group passed on a recommendation to the Personnel Committee that the Ambassadors Program Coordinator be eliminated and replaced with an Assistant Director, and that all tasks within the office be better divided between the two employees in an effort to improve recruitment, management, and retention of volunteers.
The Office of Volunteer Opportunities seeks to develop a strong ASUW volunteer base to provide the opportunities for increased personal development and greater strengthen the Association.
