SERVE Committee (Service Experience with Richter Volunteer Events)

The SERVE Committee is made up of student-leaders who are dedicated to providing their peers with quality community service opportunities.  This committee helps plan, coordinate, and implement service activities for Make a Difference Day, Serving Fresno Day, and Spring into Service – three major national and local days of service.

Students who participate in SERVE make a year-long commitment and gain valuable organization, marketing, communication, and teamwork skills.  Additionally, these students have the rewarding experience of facilitating hundreds of needed service hours for partner community benefit organizations.
