Register for Service Saturday

It's important that you register for Service Saturday so we have an accurate head count for our community partners. 


Service Saturday Schedule

Service Saturday begins at 8:30am with check-in prior to service. Check-in and site selection occurs on Davis Field closest to Longstreet Theater. All participants will be provided transportation to and from the service sites. Lunch is provided following service. All students will be back on campus at approximately 12:30pm.

You Choose Where You Serve

Service site sign-ups begin at 8:30 a.m. on the day of service. Students select service sites based on predetermined availability. If you would like to serve as a group, all group members must pre-register individually online. In order to make site selection fair for all students who participate, we WILL NOT reserve sites or hold spots for a group

If you are under the age of 18 and would like to participate in Service Saturday, you must have your parent or guardian sign a waiver. To obtain the waiver, contact Megan Michener. You can bring the signed form the day-of, or email it to Megan Michener in advance.

Service Saturday Site Leaders

Service Saturday Site Leaders are an integral part of the Service Saturday experience. Site Leaders are college students who guide a group of participants through the Service Saturday experience.
