Spartan Service Day

Tradition of Service
This annual university-wide day of service takes place during Rawkin’ Welcome Week in August. It gives UNCG students an opportunity to get off campus and be introduced to different parts of our community while working with our community partners to made a difference. Participation is free. Volunteer teams will be lead by a student Site Leader. Lunch and transportation are provided. We hope this day sparks your interest to continue to learn and serve in the Greensboro community and get involved on-campus and locally!
