October Event – Service Calendar

Prepare a service/volunteering calendar for available time slots for the next 7 to 10 days after the activity orientation. Select any 3 to 5 tasks from the given list and add them to your calendar. The purpose of these activities is to make service/volunteering contagious, and to encourage students to actively participate, and spread the message of the importance of service in a society. Students can dedicate a minimum of 30 minutes (no restrictions on the outer limit; the more the service, the merrier it gets) to any 3-5 of the following activities/services. They can also choose to conduct only 1 activity for 1 week as well. These activities have been listed down as a guide. Students can feel free to choose any activity that they feel aligns with service to society.
