Service Saturday is the low commitment, high impact service project initiative aimed at connecting students, staff, and faculty with non-profit community partners within the wider Billings area. In collaboration with trusted community partners, we offer a range of impactful service projects that foster civic pride, stewardship, and sustainability. Each project is designed to address an issue or cause directly impacting the people, wildlife or environment within the Billings community.
When is Service Saturday?
Service Saturday takes place one Saturday each month during the academic year. See below for full calendar details. Service lasts for approximately 2 hours, 9:30am-12pm. However, volunteers are welcome to continue working at the project site after the initial time scheduled. Food is provided during the check-in time starting at 9:30 in the Student Union Building Atrium.
Each project date has multiple sponsors, community partners, and project sites.

Where does Service Saturday take place?
We ask volunteers to meet in the Student Union building Atrium, University Campus at 9:30am. After a light breakfast. Volunteers can decide which service project they would like to work on for the day. Volunteers will then be given directions to the project site, but are expected to arrange their own transportation. Carpooling is encouraged, but not required.
Who can participate in Service Saturday?
Everyone! So long as you have the ability to give back to the community, anyone is welcome at Service Saturday. (young people under 18 years old may attend), and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian on the project site.
Can I use these hours to evidence service or volunteerism?
Absolutely. Service Saturday is a great opportunity to evidence your service or volunteer hours. We have a number of partnerships with college groups that continually volunteer their time for Service Saturday, whilst also meeting their service and volunteer requirements. The easiest way to evidence your hours is to log them using our online volunteer portal, Service Sting.
