Project Serve

Summer 2020

Time: TBD

What is Project Serve?

Project Serve is an annual day of sponsored community service in which teens join together in an effort to positively impact their local communities. Students assist area nonprofits and organizations with projects that might not be completed without a volunteer workforce.

Community leaders and businesses support these volunteer efforts with a financial pledge. These funds enable our students to grow in leadership and character by helping them attend various trips and conferences throughout the year.

What Do I Need to Know as a Student?

Project Serve is an opportunity for all of our middle and high schoolers to serve in our community; however, it is required for those going on an upcoming trip/conference with Bethel Students. If you have a conflict, let Sarah Dunkel know at

Below is the old schedule. Due to COVID-19, Project Serve this year will be decentralized and will take place over the summer. We will update this page when we know more.
