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 may be added if needed; watch this site for updates. Details about the work being done can be found on the individual project pages. Additional information about the projects and registration process - as well as why we do these projects - can be found here

Spring 2018 EVENTS 

OPEN Projects: 5-9

CLOSED Projects: 1*, 2*, 3*, 4*, 10*

*indicates that there is still some space available through the waitlist option

If you are interested in participating in a project that has closed, register as "waitlist" (under the Project menu) AND select the closed project from the Waitlist menu.  If space becomes available in the closed project, you will be added.  If you selected one project from the Project menu AND waitlisted for a different project under the Waitlist menu, you will be contacted if space becomes available in the waitlisted project (you will have the option to remain in your original project or shift to the waitlisted project).  Additional projects may be added as warranted based on student demand (as determined through waitlist registrations).
