Spring Break 2020

Service Projects

One Saturday per month, students will have the chance to volunteer in a variety of local community service projects taking place throughout the morning in Klamath Falls. Come out and show your OWL colors with support to local community organizations! A free t-shirt and lunch will be provided to participants back on campus following the completion of projects.

Ongoing Opportunities to Serve

We have found that many of our students have a desire to serve but don’t know how to identify opportunities, while many local organizations struggle to find volunteers. In order to help bridge this gap, we have created an online database of volunteer opportunities in our community! This list will continue to be updated as we receive more registrations from community agencies, so check back often!

Alternative Break Service Trips

Spring Break- Students participate in a week long community service adventure in a different location. Our first trip was Spring 2013, when we traveled to Sisters, Oregon and assisted in a remodeling project for a veteran. For the past three years, the V-Owls are headed to San Francisco to help communities in need and several conservation agencies.
