Guilford Day of Service

About

On Saturday, September 27, Guilford College will be putting its values into practice with the first annual Guilford Day of Service. Student-led groups will head out all over Greensboro to serve with our many community partners in a variety of ways. Students can register to participate as individual volunteers or with their clubs, organizations, sports teams or residence halls. We encourage faculty and staff to register as well.

The Day of Service will end with a community celebration picnic and reflection on campus.

The Guilford Day of Service is a reestablishment of the College tradition, College Work Day, in which the campus unified in support of projects like excavating the land that is now the Guilford Lake. This reiteration of the day reflects the goal of uniting our College community to practice our Core Values as members of the Greensboro community.

  • 9:30am - 10:15am - Gathering and opening remarks (light breakfast provided)
  • 10:30am - 1pm - Service at community sites
  • 1:30pm - Meet back on campus for celebration picnic and reflection
