Ways to Participate

Join thousands of members of the Yale community to make a difference wherever you are! The ninth global Yale Day of Service will be held on May 13, 2017, with Yale alumni around the world coming together on or around that day to serve their local communities.

Here is how you can participate:

Volunteer at a Service Site

Finding a Service Site is easy, visit the Find a Site page and you will be able to search available service sites by Service Type, U.S. State, Country, or by entering search keywords. Finally, you can register for the site directly through the link at the top of the site’s description page.

Help Organize a Site

First get in touch with your local Club President and/or the Regional Director to let them know you want to help. Information on how to organize a site and other resources can be found in the Organizer’s Toolbox.

Create an Independent Day of Service Project

If there is not a sponsored Yale Day of Service project in your area or if you are already planning your own service activity, you can still be a part of this important day for Yale. We will include your name and your planned service site on our list of participating alumni. Click here to register as an independent participant in the Yale Day of Service.
