TerpService Days are one-time days of service targeted at connecting the campus and local communities. Students with significant or no experience in service-learning are welcome to participate. Student groups also enjoy participating in TerpService days.
The purpose of TerpService Days is to provide a welcoming and positive experience for UMD students to engage in service. By providing them with a meaningful service-learning experience, we increase the likelihood that the students will become more committed to service during their undergraduate career. Additionally, students become more connected to and mindful of the community around them.
The program consists of pre-service education, service and volunteering with a local community partner, as well as reflection activities. All activities are led by Service Day Coordinators; UMD students with leadership and service training.
2016-17 Service Days: Sept. 24, Oct. 8, Oct. 29, Nov. 5, Nov. 19, Feb. 25, Mar. 11, Apr. 1, Apr. 22.
