By: Brittany Bronson

community service
Community Service
  • Definition: a service that is performed for the benefit of the public or its institutions
  • I have learned a lot over the past year about volunteering/community service.
  • Helping people is a way to give back and get involved in your community.
  • Freshmen Year Experience is a great way to get involved in Valdosta’s community, especially if you are not from the area.
  • Getting to know your town can help out quite a bit!
