Semester in Service

The Semester in Service program connects dedicated and motivated Salve Regina students with nonprofit organizations in need of long-term volunteers. In addition, Semester in Service participants are required to do one service hour in the office of community service on a weekly basis.

For the spring 2019 semester, semester in service will run from Jan. 22 through May 4. During these weeks, students will volunteer weekly at the nonprofit organization of their choice. Transportation will be provided to service sites (except during national holidays and/or University closings).
