New this year... Project Serve Winter on Saturday, January 19th!
Project Serve Winter is coming up soon and we'd love to have you join this first-ever event! If you've been a part of Project Serve, it's like that... but winterized (don't worry, you don't have to work outside)! :)
Already know you want to sign up? Register here!
Project Serve is an annual one-day event to help us connect with our wider community here in Saskatoon! You can make a difference in our community (gain some experience for your classes or your resumé) and still be home in time for supper/dinner/whichever-one-you-call-it!

|10:00 a.m.||meet and greet with other participants|
|late morning||head to our placements at community organizations|
|afternoon||get back together for brief afternoon program|
|5:00 p.m.||program end :)|
Pretty basic, huh? For a bit more detail, read on.
On Saturday morning (don’t worry, not too early – just at 10:00 a.m.) our day begins. You’ll enter the room and mingle with all the other wonderful participants. After getting to know each other a bit, we chat about the day’s events and schedule. Soon after, we'll head out to our placements!
In the early afternoon, after spending time with your community organization (which you get to select from a list we’ll give you later – we pick from your top three), we all meet up again.
Back together, we discuss the day’s adventures – who went where and did what kind of awesomeness. After that? Well, you’re free to go as of 5:00 p.m. :).
The day’s program finishes and you go home, secure in the knowledge that you’ve just met some great people, gotten to know a bit more about our community and the ways you can get involved, and built up experience for your resumé.
It’s a beautiful day, eh?
See if your question is answered here. If not, just email us at email@example.com and we’ll do our best to answer your question as soon as possible.
"Who can participate?"
Any U of S student can register! (registration closed - see you next year!)
"How are participants chosen?"
Student participants are selected as they register – first come, first served.
"How much does it cost?"
It is all FREE!
"What kinds of things will we do?"
Well, it really varies based on the organization you choose. You can see a list of the community partners we've collaborated with over the years, and there will be a list of community organizations and their projects for Project Serve 2013 coming in August 2013! :)
"Are there other ways to get involved with these organizations?"
There are loads of ways to get involved! Some of these ways are also through the University Learning Centre. Click here for more information on our similar programming. You can also visit Volunteer Saskatoon's website for the latest opportunities with organizations in and around the city.
All that you need to do to register is fill out an online form with a bit of information about you, using your NSID (your personal 'abc123' code) to access the form. Remember, participants for Project Serve are selected as they register – so the earlier you register, the better chance you have of being a part of this project (space is limited).
