Our members participate in hundreds of community service programs nationwide every year. Civic-minded activities, such as community service and philanthropic endeavors are a great way to bring students together across a broad range of groups and academic disciplines. It is an activity a lot of students can relate to and a great avenue to building your leadership skills!

Here are a few tips for organizing and promoting your community service events:

  • Partner with Other Student Groups and Make Projects Open to the Entire Student Body
  • Promote Projects through Facebook Pages, School Newspapers, E-vites, and Print Materials, such as Banners, Posters, Flyers, and Mailbox Stuffers
  • Collect Contact Information from Attendees to Use When Promoting Future Events

Once your local group of members has agreed on a service event, you need to recruit volunteers, partner with other student groups, and publicize the event.

It is also important to communicate your success to other DEI members, as well as other student organizations on your campus. This brings attention to your programs and gets people excited for what you have planned next.

Be sure to tell the National Office of your success as well, so we can spread the word throughout the entire DEI community!
