A Semester of Service- February Service Projects

'A Semester of Service' will provide students the opportunity to serve their community through group involvement that builds relationships, expands the mind and enriches the spirit. 

Each month the volunteer coordinator will coordinate one or two service project events, taking a small group of students to volunteer at the designated organization.  Service projects will typically be held on a weekday afternoon for one to three hours.  We will take a school vehicle and leave from campus. 

February Service Projects:

After school programs provide a positive place for kids throughout Roanoke.  Make a difference in your community by Participating in after school programs.   

Help a child read at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southwest Roanoke!
