Days of Service

Days of Service projects are one-day volunteer opportunities where a group of uOttawa students engage in a hands-on project in response to a need of a local community partner.

This social volunteering activity is designed to be fun, engaging and a direct response to a community need. Each of the Days of Service projects is led by a team leader. This student is responsible for getting in touch with the members of the group and arranging a place to meet on campus. On the day of the activity, all team members travel to the project site together.

Why choose Days of Service?

Consider a Day of Service if…
  • You’re a student on the go! Days of Service are designed to be fun, one-day projects that allow students to give their time in a meaningful way, without the commitment of a regular volunteer schedule;
  • You’re a new uOttawa student and are looking for a fun and social way to connect with others in the National Capital Region;
  • You’re among a group of uOttawa students searching for a hands-on team-building exercise. Days of Service projects are great for groups of students interested in a short-term community engagement activity.
