Upcoming Programs

Alternative Weekend Break

The fall AWB event will occur over the weekend of October 18th-20th. The group will travel to Kansas City and their service will focus on sustainable food systems in the city. They will also work side by side with Honeywell employees who will be volunteering with us that weekend. The event costs $25 which includes meals, transportation, and lodging. Participants must register by Friday (10/11) on Orgsync. More information is available at https://involvement.mst.edu/volunteer/altweekendbreaks/ 

Second Saturday Service

On October 12th we will have our Second Saturday Service event of the month. We are partnering with The Meramec Regional Planning Commission which works to enhance the quality of life for residents of the Meramec Region.  They are working in collaboration with the Ozark Rivers Solid Waste Management District which provides assistance to communities to achieve waste reduction.  The team will be helping the organizations to clean an illegal dumping site. We can have up to 30 volunteers at this project so make sure to register here before all the spots are taken!

OUR GOALS

  • Strengthen Community
    By being involved in programming and through using resources provided by this office, students at S&T will develop a stronger understanding of community, and how their actions impact their community on a personal, local, national and international level.
  • Build Bridges
    Through engaging with this office students will work with people, organizations, and communities that will challenge preconceived notions which will foster a greater a sense of understanding between different groups.
  • Empower Individuals
    Students who participate in activities and actively seek out relationships with community partners will learn skills that empower them to be effective change makers in communities after S&T.
  • Create Solutions
    Those who involve themselves with the Office of Volunteerism and Involvement will be prepared to identify and creatively solve problems that affect the greater community.

 

Community Partners

To effect positive change in the greater community and to teach students how to make impactful choices in their future it is important that connections are built in the Rolla community. Our community partners are a valuable asset to S&T, as they provide our students with the majority of the service opportunities that are participated in each year. Follow the Community Partners link here to learn more about those organizations that support service in the Rolla community.
