Into the Streets - September 19th & 26th


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?



 Site Leader Registration

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.
