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!

Upcoming Events:

Sept. 10-12: Join us for the Great Burn Service Weekend and hike the state trail line to Pearl Lake. We will monitor trail conditions, clean up campsites and pull St. Johns Wort.

Sept. 19: Join us in helping Celebrate 25 Years of Flagship. Help with activities ... set-up, tear-down, and games.

Get more information about events and ask to be included on our Service Saturday list by emailing service.saturday@umt.edu.

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 have an optionally attached service-learning independent-study credit.

Does your organization have a one-week or one-weekend volunteer project? Let us know. Contact Emily Lynch at emily.lynch@umontana.edu (406-243-5128) if you would like to visit with us about an idea.
