First Fridays

Student clubs and individual students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in monthly community service opportunities in the Flint area organized by the UM-Flint Center for Civic Engagement. Locations, time, and the number of needed volunteers vary from month to month, and we are open to your suggestions!

Volunteers are encouraged to meet at the 1st floor UCEN lobby 20 minutes prior to each event’s start time. The First Friday of Service Program Coordinator will lead the group to the volunteer site from this start location 15 minutes prior to the posted event start time.
