UAS Day of Service

What is Day of Service?

Each April, UAS student leaders connect students, faculty, staff, and Juneau community to service projects throughout the capital city of Alaska. This single day of service provides volunteers with meaningful service opportunities where they can choose from a variety of projects that match their interests in addition to learning about the great work being done in our capital city.

The Juneau Arts and Humanities Council strives to spotlight and support local and regional artists. The Gallery space at JACC serves as a platform for artists to showcase their work to a broad audience of Southeast Alaskans and visitors alike. This year, the JACC has been so booked with events and exhibits that they need all hands on deck to clean and refurbish the Gallery in preparation for the upcoming UAS Ceramics show! Expect to work around paint fumes, loud noises, and to get your hands, shoes and clothes dirty.

The Teal Street Shelter has been housing vulnerable families and individuals for years, but has needed major renovations to prevent closure and continue doing crucial work and service. With your help, certain outstanding tasks can be completed, such as painting, sweeping, trash pickup and even wall demolition. By volunteering for this project, you will help ensure the critically important shelter remains open and help those in need for years to come.
