Dawg Day of Service

UGA students, faculty and staff give back to the community every year with Dawg Day of Service.

The University of Georgia community is invited to participate in Dawg Day of Service on Sept. 6 from 9:30 a.m.- 3 p.m.

“Dawg Day of Service is intended to bridge the connection between UGA and Athens, allowing students to see and understand the importance of being an active citizen and giving back to their communities,” said Katie Johnston, senior coordinator for UGA’s Center for Leadership and Service.

Participants will volunteer at different sites around the Athens-Clarke County area where they will have the chance to network and interact with students, community members, and staff, while engaging in meaningful service and addressing community needs. Last year approximately 750 students from more than 15 registered student organizations volunteered at 20 sites around Athens.

Transportation to some sites will be provided. Preregistration is required and a limited number of volunteer slots are available.

The event is being hosted by UGA’s Center for Leadership and Service, a division of Student Affairs. For more information, see cls.uga.edu/dawgdayofservice/.
