Service Squad

What is Service Squad?

Service Squad is a program specific to first year students that focuses on promoting intentional and engaged service and leadership across the University of Georgia’s campus. Throughout this year-long program, students will learn about the Athens-Clarke County community, the need for service on UGA’s campus, and their own identities as leaders.

Students will participate in a one-day teambuilding retreat and bi-weekly meetings that will help cultivate their understanding of these topics, as well as work to apply them through both campus and community service events. Meetings for Service Squad will be held every other Tuesday throughout the academic year from 6:00pm-7:00pm
