  • March 21 - CANCELLED

Register for Service Saturday

It's important that you register for Service Saturday so we have an accurate head count for transportation and lunch. 


Service Saturday Schedule

8:30 a.m. Choose where you serve begins (Meet at Davis Field)
9 a.m. Buses will depart at the Horseshoe
9:30 a.m. Volunteers arrive at service sites
12:30 p.m. Volunteers arrive back on-campus for lunch (approximate)

You Choose Where You Serve

Service site sign-ups begin at 8:30 a.m. on the day of service. Just show up and select your preferred site. If you would like to serve as a group, all group members must pre-register individually online. Plan to arrive early and together for registration on the morning of Service Saturday. In order to make site selection fair for all students who participate, we WILL NOT reserve sites or hold spots for a group. Arriving early and together makes it more likely that your group will be able to find a site that accommodates your size. 

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.
