Vanderbilt “I Will” Weekend of Service

September 12th – 16th, 2013

The 2013 Vanderbilt Weekend of Service will take place Thursday, Sept. 12th – Monday, Sept. 16th. Please join us by leading a project or starting August 29th sign up for one of the many actions taking place across Nashville this September.

“What will you do to make a difference this year?”

Students, staff, and faculty across Vanderbilt are invited to answer this question through service projects taking place throughout the city of Nashville Thursday, Sept. 12th – Monday, Sept. 16th.* Projects are often student-led and connect with community partners to address specific needs.  If you would like help in planning a project, please let us know! Email oacs@vanderbilt.edu, call 615-343-7878, or stop by Rand 305 anytime.

Check out more “I Will” statements from Vanderbilt students on the OACS YouTube Channel!

*Please note that we have extended the dates of the Weekend of Service to include Thursday, Sept. 12th and Monday, Sept. 16th in recognition of the Yom Kippur holiday.  For student organizations involved in the Weekend of Service, we ask that you not require participation from members of your organization who wish to observe Yom Kippur; we encourage you to instead plan alternate projects or move your project date to accommodate participation for all.  We look forward to another amazing effort by the Vanderbilt community and its students this September.
