leadership program ltu service saturdays

 

The Office of Leadership Programs 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 of 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. 

Calendar of Service Events is created each year and shared with the campus community.
