Sign Up for a Service Project in the Honors Program’s Days of Service and Learning!

Each year, the Honors Program organizes our Days of Service and Learning, a series of service projects, in September and early October. Participating is a great way to get to know our community and support local nonprofits. We are grateful to Meijer for providing a generous donation to make these projects possible. 

Please sign up using the links. An honors student facilitator will be in contact with you to organize transportation. If you have any questions, please contact us at or 231-591-2216.
