Create A Project

All service projects are registered on this website. When you’re ready to register your project, be sure to check out our Registering a Service Project on serve.msu.edu.

We encourage all who create a project to review the Project Planning Guide, which is intended to assist in the creation, registration, promotion, execution, and follow-up for a service project.

Find A Project/Volunteer

All service projects are registered on this website, so you’ll find an opportunity to volunteer here.

We do request that all volunteers register for the service project they’re interested in to ensure an accurate headcount, and that they receive communications regarding the project.

After you register to volunteer, you’ll receive an email that confirms the details of the service project and the name and contact information of the project coordinator. You can also expect to receive an email from the project coordinator two to five days in advance of the event.

What If There Is No Project To Volunteer For In My Area?

If you do not see a service project listed near you, we encourage to first contact your local alumni club. Chances are they’re planning something, but it may not be registered on this website yet.

You may also choose to connect with a community partner/organization and register as an individual participant/service project. You are strongly encouraged to volunteer with an established community partner/organization.

Keep checking this website, as new projects are added frequently.
