A major component of the Luckyday 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 10 hours each semester beginning spring of their freshman year.
Service that may be counted towards Luckyday hours includes:
We recommend connecting with the Center for Community Engagement. They maintain an online database volunteer.usm.edu with ongoing and event-based opportunities on campus and in the community. There you can connect with volunteer needs and keep track of service hours throughout your college career.
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
