Semester in Service

The Semester in Service program connects dedicated and motivated Salve Regina students with nonprofit organizations in need of long-term volunteers.

For the fall 2018 semester, Semester in Service will run from Sept. 17 through Dec. 7. During this time, students will volunteer weekly at the nonprofit organization of their choice. Transportation will be provided to specific service sites (except during national holidays and/or University closings).

Semester in Service participants are also required to complete one service hour in the Office of Community Service each week.
