become a part of uga® miracle
UGA® Miracle has a place for everyone and offers a variety of ways to get involved depending on your desired level of commitment. We want you to join our team!
Miracle Members are the hands and feet of our organization! Miracle Members serve as the general body of UGA® Miracle, and our Miracle Members have the opportunity to attend and participate in any of our Miracle events! We will hold two meetings each semester to keep you up to date about what’s happening in our organization, including events, fundraising, our families, and Dance Marathon. This is a great way to get involved in Miracle at your own pace and to make an impact on the lives of everyone we serve. Click below to become a Miracle Member!
If you register for Dance Marathon, you are officially considered a Miracle Maker and part of UGA® Miracle! When registering online, you will be asked if you are on a team. Check to see if your Sorority, Fraternity, or other student organization that you participate in may have one to join! If not, that's okay! Anyone can create a new team if they like. Fundraising totals for all team members are combined and teams are given the opportunity to present a check at Dance Marathon in February. Click below to become a Miracle Maker!
Committee Members are some of the most passionate people we know! As the heart of this organization, these individuals have decided to take an additional step of leadership and commitment, UGA® Miracle has many different committees in which these members take on various responsibilities. As a whole, these committee members inspire and push UGA® Miracle to achieve the impossible every day.
Ignite is a brand new introductory committee created to give new members an opportunity to experience all aspects of UGA® Miracle! We will offer leadership experience opportunities and will bring in new committees every week to give insight into all that Miracle has to offer. Throughout the year, underclassmen will be given the knowledge and tools for fundraising and will have the chance to interact with and support our Miracle Families. We will also be planning our own fundraising events and engaging with the rest of our campus to show what Miracle is all about. This will be a low-commitment committee that meets every other week and allows new Miracle members to gradually participate in our cause. Our goal this year is to foster new members leading up to Dance Marathon and give them the foundation to build upon in their future Miracle endeavors.
Color Group Captain
Color Group Captains represent the spirit of UGA® Miracle! Captains work directly with the UP Directors to engage our UP members and Miracle Makers and equip them with the knowledge of what UGA® Miracle stands for as an organization and as a family. All Miracle Makers are assigned to a color group, and it is up to the Color Group Captains to foster relationships and connections within their group at all levels of involvement. Essentially, a Color Group Captain thrives at making others feel valued within UGA® Miracle and helps members connect to the cause throughout the year. Captains will also lead their color groups in Color Group Wars at Dance Marathon!
Assistant Chairs have the unique opportunity to work closely with the Executive Board members of their committee and be lead the activities of their committee throughout the year. Each year, more and more responsibility is being placed on our Assistant Chairs to become leaders within their committee and create a welcoming environment for new members. The specific responsibilities of an Assistant Chair vary based on the committee's needs and focus throughout the year.
Executive Board Member
Executive Board members are selfless and relentless! The Executive Board consists of a total of 28 members who have decided to dedicate all they are to the improvement of the organization. The Board consists of the Co-Chairs who lead committees, as well as the Council of directors. The role of an Executive Board member is an intensive and extremely rewarding experience. Board members invest their time into the UGA® Miracle family and gain so much more in the process. Organizational decisions, planning, and execution happens within the Executive Board in order to create an unforgettable experience for members at all levels of involvement.
