Service Saturdays

USC Columbia students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in our signature monthly service days. You simply register, pick your site during sign ups on the morning of the event, and serve! We provide the transportation to your service site and lunch. Serving in the Columbia community has never been easier or more FUN!

Pre-registration for the next Service Saturday is now open! Registration is encouraged in advance because those who do not pre-register are subject to be placed on a waitlist on the day of service.

On the day of Service Saturday, sign-ups begin at 8:30 a.m., buses will depart at 9 a.m., volunteers arrive at service sites by 9:30 a.m., and volunteers arrive back for lunch around 12:30 p.m..

If you would like to serve as a group, please make sure that each of your group members registers online. Show up early and together for registration the morning of Service Saturday. In order to make site selection fair for all students who participate, we WILL NOT reserve sites or hold spots for a group. Arriving early and together makes it more likely that your group will be able to find a site that accommodates your size. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., so please plan accordingly.

If you are under the age of 18 and would like to participate in Service Saturday, please have your parent or guardian sign this Service Saturday Waiver and email us a scanned copy to This will be on file for you to sign the day of service.
