What’s This Program About?

The VOLife Skills and Career Development program at The University of Tennessee Athletic Department is designed to prepare student-athletes at the University of Tennessee for life after the completion of their collegiate careers. Student-athletes, in general, have a skill set that makes them attractive to both employers and graduate programs.  While we will never discourage student-athletes from pursuing professional careers in their sports, we strongly encourage them to become involved in something beyond academics and athletics.  Experience with community service, internships, on-campus organizations, part-time or summer jobs, and networking are examples demonstrating a well-roundedness that will allow student-athletes to stand out as potential employees and/or graduate school applicants.
