From a grad.


"You'll find someone who likes the same things you do and has the same passion for service. ESA is so accepting and welcoming. Just be yourself!"

From a parent.


“Of all the things my son has done, I think Jason founding the ESA chapter at UF is what I am most proud of. It has brought so much into his life and changed the lives of so many others, including my mother and I. After Jason told us about ESA, I joined a community chapter and my mom joined ESA the following year. In ESA we have gained another family, enriched our lives in too many ways to count, and learned the love of giving. Thank you, Jason!”
