A major component of the Luckyday Citizenship Scholars Program is service. One factor evaluated when high school students are applying for the program is their community involvement. Once selected as a Luckyday Scholar, students are asked to volunteer at least 20 hours each semester beginning the spring of their freshman year.

Service Description

Service that may be counted towards Luckyday hours includes:

  • Service in the greater Hattiesburg area
  • Service with a non-profit organization that is meeting a need in the community
  • Direct service 
  • Service that answers the questions posed by Robert Greenleaf in his test of servant-leadership:
    1. Do those served grow as persons?
    2. Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? 
    3. What is the effect on the least privileged in society--will they benefit, or at least, not be further deprived?
If there is a service site or project that doesn't fall into these categories, please complete this form before January 31, 2014:

Service Dates

Service should be completed inside the semester, between the dates of class beginning and finals ending. All service should be completed by the end of the spring semester.
