Mystery Service Saturdays


Mystery Service Saturday is a program in Leadership and Civic Engagement where students are given the chance to explore the social and volunteer opportunities around North Carolina.  Students will embark to an unknown local service organization and provide their help. Afterwards, students will be taken to a fun social activity that explores local North Carolina culture, as well as allows students to interact with those they have served with!  Be excited for the element of surprise and the enjoyment of service!

MSS: International Edition

  • September 22, 2018
  • Partnering with the Global Training Institute (GTI), participants had the opportunity to serve with 27 students from Japan’s Nagoya University. After an opportunity to get to know each other over lunch, these volunteers split into two groups to complete service with Mission Thrift and Note in the Pocket, two donation-based clothing charities. Here the groups had the chance to sort through and quality check donations which will ultimately be given to those unable to purchase clothing necessities. After the service, the groups reconvened and participated in a discussion about cultural experience and how it pertains to volunteerism.
