Students who are interested in service but are unable to commit to our semester-long programs may be interested in our short-term service projects and events.
Community Service Day
Community Service Day, launched in Fall 2019, is an annual event at Slippery Rock University which brings students, faculty, and community partners together to foster civic engagement. Students and faculty may volunteer to participate in one of two service sessions, in which they travel to one of the community partner sites to assist in community-defined needs and learn more about important social issues.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each semester, there will be three service days in which students on campus may sign up to participate in volunteering at an off-campus site in the local community. Volunteers will be led by Bonner Leaders, who spend the semester completing regular service at each site. Service Saturdays are designed to foster a love for and commitment to service on Slippery Rock University's campus by providing students with access to service opportunities.
In Fall 2019, Service Saturday sites will include the Robert A. Macoskey Center, the Slippery Rock Community Library, and Don't Stop Dreamin'.
