Second Saturday Service
Have you been wondering how to get more involved in the community or gain volunteer experience?
In Fall 2016, the Student Involvement began a new community engagement initiative known as Second Saturday Service. On the second Saturday of each month, the department hosts a volunteer opportunity with one of our local community organizations that gets students involved in the Phelps County community and meet the community's needs!
Second Saturday Service projects will run from 8am-12pm. Students. faculty, and staff must register to particpate by the Wednesday before each event on OrgSync. There is no charge to participate.
If you have any questions about the Second Saturday Service program, please contact Jessica Haywood, Program Administrator for Volunteerism and Greek Life at email@example.com
Please check back in August 2020 for an update on Fall Semester 2020 Second Saturday Service Projects.
