leadership program ltu service saturdays

 

The Office of Student Engagement hosts monthly volunteer opportunities for students. These events typically take place on a Saturday, and partner with one or more student organizations and a local non-profit agency in need of volunteers. Students who participate in these service projects can include their hours on their Leadership Transcript, scholarship applications, graduate school applications, resumes... the possibilities are endless.

Two projects are part of annual, nation-wide movements of service among college students: Make a Difference Day in October and Martin Luther King Day of Service in January.
