Service Education & Resources for Volunteers

A lot of people are waiting for Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi to come back—but they are gone. We are it. It is up to us. It is up to you. — Marian Wright Edelmans

Who Can SERV?

Anyone can participate in a SERV event! However, there are students who are required to complete hours. Students who receive Menlo College Based scholarships are required to complete 30 hours of community service each year. Spring transfers and senior students are required to complete 15 hours of community service.


  • The Salsa Festival is a day where students participate in a Redwood City community event. Students  help with set up, break down, and maintain booths throughout the day.
  • Garfield Day is a great way that Menlo students share their story with younger students.  This day   consists of giving tours and sharing from personal experiences.
  • Blood Drives are one of the best ways to give back. Donate blood and Save a life.  Many students are not comfortable with donating blood but can still participate in the event by volunteering to help run the event!

Each month there are several other events such as blanket making,  trips to Lytton Gardens, Habitat Restoration days, and helping out at Ronald McDonald House Charities. Keep an eye out for updates and new events every month! We post events on the Campus news, Menlo’s    calendar, and flyers around campus

Can’t make the SERV events? Want to do your own activity? No problem, simply grab this form and turn it into the SERV office. (All SERV activities performed are unpaid volunteered position)


This is a great way to go green! Bring bags of recycling such as bottles, glass and cans to the Student Affairs Office and we will do the rest. Students can earn up to 10 hours of recycling.


To engage Menlo College students, faculty and staff in community field experiences, leadership, individual and team projects that will channel their skills and energy toward positive, humane objectives and responsible citizenship.


We are Located in the Student Affairs Office in the Administration Building
