Service Team

Join the SCSU Service Team!

The SCSU Service Team is made up of students dedicated to serving the local community. The Service Team fulfills this mission through collaboration with other organizations on campus, as well as agencies within the community. The Service Team works toward fostering long-term relationships with agencies within the community to do as much good and provide as much help as possible. They focus on education and awareness on campus, through presenting to classes and organizations, holding programs/awareness events, and keeping the conversation about service alive on campus. The Service Team also provides on and off campus service opportunities and experiences for Southern students and staff.

Volunteering in the Community

The Service Team provides students the opportunity to volunteer in the New Haven community.  Members volunteer at local schools, nursing homes, animal shelters and food pantries.  Saturdays of Service is a new program which allows students to volunteer at different locations in New Haven on a Saturday or Sunday each month.

Service Team performs on campus service activities for all students to take part in.  Service activities include blanket making, dog toy making, decorating cards and creating snack bags for local schoolchildren.
