Shepherd University’s Annual Day of Service will be held Tuesday, August 20, 2013. We have a large group of first year students enrolled in the program who are ready to make a difference in our community.

Kick-start your Shepherd experience by participating in the Emerging Leaders in Service Program.

  • Discover your strengths, leadership potential, and ability to make a difference in the world.
  • Build relationships with other emerging leaders, current student leaders, and staff mentors.
  • Experience leadership in action by participating in Shepherd's 14th annual Day of Service volunteering with a team of first year students at a non-profit agency in the community.

Cost $150 - This covers the cost of 8 meals, two t-shirts, a StrengthQuestTM assessment, leadership exploration workshops, and a challenge ropes course.
