What does a ServErie School Initiative look Like?

Usually lasts three days, from Thursday – Saturday


Two Shifts

Each day is divided into two shifts, and depending on funding, lunch will be provided or options for lunch are nearby.



Kick-off is at 8 AM in the morning and goes until 12 PM; Second shift is 1 PM – 5 PM. Arrive 15 minutes before your shift.


Arrive at the school

Go to the registration desk, sign-in, and get a t-shirt. Registration will tell you where you are assigned. 


Site Leader & Volunteer

If you’re the site leader, get your sign and wait for the kick-off. If you’re a volunteer, look for your site leader and the group you’re assigned to. Gather together, say hi to your site leader in the green t-shirt and to your group members. 


Shift start

Each shift starts right at 8 AM (or 12 PM), someone will say a few words. Then about 15 minutes later, you will be dismissed to your work site.


Get to work

Once you’re dismissed, then it’s time to get to work! Your site leader will tell you what you need to know to serve that day. It’s ok to take a break when you need one while you’re working.


Your shift is over!

Once your shift is over, you’re welcome to head home unless you signed up for more than one shift.
