INTO THE STREETS
Into the Streets at Missouri State is the first large-scale service event of the semester! This annual program features community service opportunities for hundreds of students. Get out into our community and serve alongside local agencies! Through this program, Missouri State students will be actively involved in one of our Public Affairs Pillars, Community Engagement.
What is a better way to spend a Saturday than serving with friends, making new friends, volunteering, and making a difference in the lives of others?
Open to Students, Faculty, and Staff! Site leaders are responsible for leading a group of 5-20 students to a pre-arranged service site and conducting a debriefing wrap up and reflection after service for Into the Streets Service Day on September 19th and/or September 26th. The day will start around 8 AM and should be completed by 1 PM. A short training (<30min) is required.
We are ready for you to sign up for one of these awesome days of service - Go into the streets with fellow Bears! There's nothing better than serving with friends... sign up with a group, or go solo and meet some cool new people. *Note the date of the service day you are signing up for.
Into the Streets Part 1 Saturday, September 19th - Registration in Plaster Student Union Theater at 8a.m.
Into the Streets Part 2 Saturday, September 26th - Registration in PSU Grand Ballroom at 8a.m.
