Civic Engagement & Service
Days of Service
This annual kick-off to the community service year occurs at the start of each Fall semester. Hundreds of new USF students come out to volunteer together in the Tampa Bay area. CHARGE into your community, connect with your fellow Bulls and serve the Tampa Bay area. This new-student tradition of service connects you with not only the Tampa Bay community but upperclassmen at USF who can help you learn about involvement opportunities on campus and help you be successful.
The purpose of SOS is to get students involved! Even though this is a one-day event, students receive the resources necessary to continue participating in community service on a constant basis. Students are encouraged to check out other Center for Leadership & Civic Engagement (CLCE) community service events and continue to keep the spirit of service and Martin Luther King Jr. alive. SOS serves more than 60 different organizations in the Tampa Bay community, volunteering with: Senior citizens, the environment, youth, homelessness, poverty, women's issues, education, and many more.
