Service Saturdays

ELCS, in partnership with Volunteers in Action,  plans one-time service projects on Saturdays at different nonprofits in Missoula several times a month during the school year.  Past Service Saturdays include socializing cats at Animeals, serving food at the Poverello Center, harvesting vegetables with Garden City Harvest, raking leaves for the elderly through Missoula Aging Services, and much more!

Alternative Breaks

The Alternative Breaks program places teams of college students in community service and experiential learning positions during their summer, fall, winter or spring breaks. Students perform short term projects for community agencies and learn about issues such as literacy, poverty, racism, hunger, homelessness and the environment. UM coordinates Alternative Breaks during Spring and Summer Breaks. Alternative Break trips has an optional attached service learning independent study credit.
