Looking to give back and get involved? Look no further than the many opportunities SVS has for you!
Our one-stop-shop for service opportunities open to students that are posted by community partners. The platform also keeps track of service hours throughout your time as a student at KSU for easy access to use in graduate school applications, resume building, and more.
- Before you begin tracking service hours through GivePulse, please review the SVS Service Tracking Guidelines to familiarize yourself with what service activities can and cannot be tracked in the system.
- Get started today using your KSU credentials.
Why should I serve?
- Serving provides students with an opportunity to advance their careers with field experience that is great for a resume on job applications and for a CV letter on graduate school applications.
- Serving also provides students with an opportunity to engage with the community and create a positive impact for others while bonding with those surrounding you.
How can I serve?
SVS uses a platform called GivePulse to streamline the process of finding service opportunities. Students can navigate to kennesaw.givepulse.com, sign up using their KSU credentials, and begin to search for hundreds of service opportunities from upwards of a hundred local organizations. GivePulse also allows you to sign up for Owls Serve days, which are days that occur once a month in which students work with other students to serve a organization in the community. SVS also hosts the KSU Day of Service, which is a yearly event where our team gathers five-hundred students to serve at upwards of twenty-five different service sites.
Where should I start?
The SVS department encourages students to sign up and participate in as many Owls Serve days as possible and the KSU Day of Service. This will allow students to get started with serving their community without the process being overwhelming. Then, students can use GivePulse to find various service opportunities as they become more comfortable. If you need any assistance throughout your journey serving, the Department of Student Volunteerism and Service is here to assist you as best we can.
