Service Saturdays

Explore Your Passion.

Share Your Energy.

Be the Change.

Coordinated through the Office of Student Engagement, the Service Saturdays Program offers Ithaca College students a unique opportunity to serve organizations, projects, and events through Tompkins County with passion and energy. Each year, we partner with more than twenty different service-based organizations, with program participants generating more than 1,700 total hours of service annually! Our goal is to promote active citizenship by offering our students the chance to engage directly with our partners. For many students, Service Saturdays is their exposure to working in the community. The program offers perhaps the best "stepping stone" to other opportunities at IC - from leading an Alternative Break trip to enrolling in a service learning course.

For each service date, we:

1. Assign volunteers to a location based on their interest

2. Provide all necessary transportation, whether it be a free TCAT pass or charter bus

3. Arrange on-site supervision with our partners

4. Offer giveaways and OSE swag like stickers, water bottles, and more!
