Service Ambassadors is held every Friday afternoon for a few hours during the academic year to connect students to the mid-Michigan community. During this time you will learn about local needs and ways to get involved more regulary (independently or with the Volunteer Center).
Each week, participants will meet to get a brief orientation where they will meet each other and gather knowledge about the local non-profit selected that week. Students will then spend a few hours serving that non-profit organization in a variety of ways. Following service, volunteers will reflect about their experiences together.
These inclusive trips are available to all students regardless of their field of study or volunteer experience; all that is required is a passion for giving back to the community! Transportation to and from the site is provided by the Volunteer Center. Service Ambassadors will join a cohort of volunteers who are all connected by their service experiences.
Volunteers must RSVP on OrgSync to participate in Service Ambassador activities. Search the Events calendar to learn about each Friday's service trip. You will receive a confirmation via email with more directions as the event draws near. Unable to find availability on OrgSync?
