Spring into service! Choose a project, sign-up, and volunteer for the spring quarter Weekend of Service. Dates range from April 28-30 and projects are located in Davis and the greater Sacramento area.

Adopt a Block and Earn Community Service Hours

The Adopt-a-Block program gives groups the opportunity to enhance the look of their community by beautifying and maintaining a street or section of a street within or surrounding UC Davis main campus.

Why does it matter? UC Davis joined the rest of the UCs in going Smoke and Tobacco Free on January 1, 2014. While we have high levels of compliance for the policy, this has had a spillover effect on our campus neighbors and several “hot spots” have formed on campus. Cigarette butts are the most littered item with over 4.5 million being discarded annually. Student volunteers picked up over 4300 cigarette butts on campus in just 2 hours in spring 2015!

Student orgs are encouraged to form teams, sign up, and help keep our campus community clean! Email kclift@ucdavis.edu to learn more and sign up.

The process to apply and interview will start this coming fall, and the selected group will be notified and sign the lease during spring 2018. Email studenthousing@ucdavis.edu to add your name to the interest list to receive updates regarding the application process.
