Spring 2018 Service Learning Events

Spring service learning registration opens February 5 at 10:00 AM. The number of participants a particular event can accommodate typically varies from 20-40 and depends on the scheduled activity.  Note that events are scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays in the morning/early afternoon.  Due to liability logistics and as a courtesy to our partners, you must register for events (see registration link on side menu).  Events fill up quickly and registration is closed when they reach capacity. New events will be added as they are scheduled. Details about the work being done can be found on the individual project pages. Additional information about the projects and registration process can be found here.

If you are interested in participating in a project that has closed, register as "waitlist" (under the Project menu) and select a project from the Waitlist menu.  Additional projects may be added as warranted based on student demand (as determined through waitlist registrations).
