Join us for Service Raleigh on Saturday, April 6

Service Raleigh is an annual citywide day of service started in 1998 by NC State’s Student Government and Park Scholars. Each year, volunteers from the university and surrounding community unite to undertake a variety of projects, each of which provides much needed assistance to local organizations.

This year, we’re partnering with local organizations on Saturday, April 6, to address the needs of our community, to foster a sense of community spirit and to inspire our volunteers to a lifetime of involvement in public service.

The day will kickoff at the Talley Student Union at 8 a.m. Volunteers will then head to their respective organization’s site. Volunteers will be alerted about their site’s location the week of Service Raleigh.

Hear from the Service Raleigh Co-Chairs:

“For me, Service Raleigh is a testament to the strength of our community’s collective spirit. Our organization is a cherished tradition that shows what is possible for our city when we collaborate toward a shared purpose.” -Sahib Chandi ’24

“I have been involved with the Community Involvement Committee for Service Raleigh since my freshman year and now have the honor of serving as the Co-Chair of the committee. As a North Carolina native from the Triangle area, I am always excited for the opportunity to give back to my community that has poured so much into my personal and professional endeavors. Volunteers are the backbone of Service Raleigh and we love engaging with our volunteer groups year after year.” -Alexa Jimenez Escribano ’24

“I have been actively involved in Service Raleigh since my freshman year because its mission of collective community impact resonates with the Islamic principles imbued in my upbringing. As a member of the Pack, I view Service Raleigh as an embodiment of the Wolfpack spirit, emphasizing collaboration with the community to champion causes greater than oneself.” -Aisha Mahmood ’24

“Service Raleigh is where students across the university come together to engage with the wider Raleigh community in ways that are meaningful to both the partners and volunteers. It is truly a joy to hear the reactions from partners about having students volunteer with them and learning about the large impact the volunteers have across the triangle.” -Joe Staudt ’24
