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 that may be counted towards Luckyday hours includes:
We recommend connecting with the Center for Community Engagement[BROKEN LINK]. They stay in contact with local agencies and help to organize service days throughout the semester. Their office is located in the Hub, room 104.
Volunteer Southeast Mississippi, run by the United Way of Southeast Mississippi, is also another good resource for finding opportunities to serve in our area. Visit unitedwaysems.org/volunteer
