The SERVE Office hosts a series of Friday service projects around Lamoille County. Students and other JSC community members meet beforehand to learn about a social issue, then travel to provide direct service with a local organization, then regroup afterwards to talk about and celebrate the experience. This is a great way to get involved, meet other students, and get to know the greater community.
