Make an Impact on the MSU Global Day of Service

Who will make an impact all over the world?
SPARTANS WILL.

The SPARTANS WILL. POWER Global Day of Service set for April 8, 2017, is our way of showing the world the extraordinary impact Spartans can make in a single day. This organized, collaborative effort will bring Spartans together to serve others in their communities while demonstrating the reach and power of the Spartan network.

Service-minded Spartans from around the globe - individual alumni, alumni communities, groups, Spartan-led companies, businesses, non-profits and student organizations are currently registering service projects. Spartans can also volunteer now for one of these established projects or create their own.

The deadline for registering projects is March 24, and volunteer registration closes on April 2.

What to Expect: Project and Volunteer Registration

Once you register a project, you'll receive an email confirmation that will include a link to allow you to access your project details and:

  • Add/decrease number of volunteers needed.
  • Remove volunteers upon request.
  • Find volunteer contact information.
  • Send service project updates to volunteers.

You will also receive an email when someone volunteers for your project. See our project planning guide for additional information on coordinating your project.

After you register to volunteer, you’ll receive an email that confirms the details of your project. You’ll also receive an email from your project coordinator with information prior to April 8.

What if There is No Project to Volunteer for in My Area?

If you’re interested in volunteering but do not see a project in your area, let us know you're interested and we’ll tell you if a project is added near you. You can also create your own project, or check back as projects are often added.
