Annual Days of Service
Engage Arkansas works to support and promote service days throughout the year, developing partnership projects and toolkits for citizens across the state to make a difference in their communities. This page is updated as plans develop each year. If you are interested in partnering or planning a day of service in your community, reach out to Engage.AR@adhe.edu. Sign up for our Days of Service newsletter for event announcements and updates.
Planning A Service Day For Your Community
Whether you participate in a National Day of Service or create a local service initiative, these opportunities allow organizations, cities, and volunteers across Arkansas to impact communities. Aside from impact, service initiatives allow communities and organizations to raise awareness for various causes while actively creating solutions and engaging the public. Examples of volunteer focus areas include education, mentoring, community beautification, environmental restoration, senior hunger, homelessness, infrastructure, and veterans’ services, but many more opportunities exist that are not listed here.
To guide your service project planning, we've created a helpful Project Planning Toolkit will help you plan impact-minded projects for National Days of Service and local service initiatives by helping you develop activities, identify potential project partners, meet deadlines, and generate publicity for your event. Feel free to adapt any of these materials to fit your needs and the needs of your community.
