Members of Unified We Serve are expected to commit to two requirements: 1) Attend Unified We Serve meetings twice a month (see Events and Meetings for a list of meeting dates and times); and 2) Serve 25 hours of service throughout the academic year by attending Unified We Serve events (by doing so, you will earn the President's Volunteer Service Award).
If you are unable to attend the meetings, you can still be a member of Unified We Serve. Make sure you designate on the Membership Form that you will attend the events but are not able to come to the bi-monthly meetings.
