How do I print the word VOLUNTEER in a single line without breaking,

Here is my MWE

    Try \mbox{\MakeUppercase{volunteer}} Feb 15, 2018 at 17:53
  • probable duplicate: No hyphen for a word. also, for this text, i'd be inclined to place it in a center environment since otherwise the spacing will be annoyingly uneven. (i'd choose center rather than raggedright since i think this looks better for such a formal document.) Feb 15, 2018 at 18:56

To prevent hyphenation of a specific word, wrap it in a \mbox{}:

\documentclass{scrartcl}

\begin{document}

\begin{minipage}[l]{13cm}
    This is to certify that~Mr./Ms./Dr./Prof. Biki Teron has worked as \mbox{\MakeUppercase{volunteer}} in the \textbf{$\textit{34}^{\textrm{\textit{th}}}$ National Workshop on ABCD/EFGH \& Gahbsdfraew Devices} during 29 - 30 July, 2018 held at Abcdsa for Abcdtechnology, Dfghdj Institute of Technology Aghsdfar, Aaadk, Ppsdp.
