Register for a robust servant-leadership weekendUAB Student Involvement and Leadership will host a weekend dedicated to service and leadership for students by way of their annual Into the Streets and Fall Leadership Conference events.

The weekend will kick off with “Into the Streets: A Day of Service” on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017 from 8 a.m.–1 p.m. Into the Streets is a bi-annual program sponsored by the Leadership and Service Council designed to connect UAB students to the Birmingham community through a day of service. Each fall and spring semester, UAB students come together to help the university accomplish its mission of encouraging partnerships that improve education, health, economic prosperity and quality of life.

Student organizations and individual participants interested in serving can sign up through Bsync starting October 1. (Registrants will be allowed to designate their preferred service site on their forms.) The volunteer meeting location will be outside at the Hill Student Center’s Amphitheater. Rain location will be the UAB Campus Recreation Center. Each participant will rejoin for lunch after their site’s tasks are completed.

The weekend of service will continue the following day on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017 from 1-5 p.m. with "Revive the Drive to Lead: Millennials as Servant Leaders" in the Hill Student Center. Continuing the theme of student service, this inaugural Fall Leadership Conference will include a half-day of learning, workshops and keynote speakers with the goal of inspiring, motivating and molding UAB students into world-class servant leaders. The event will also feature two prominent millennial trailblazers as keynote speakers: Huntsville District 1 City Councilor Devyn Keith and 2016 Miss USA Deshauna Barber.

This event is free to all students. For more information and disability accommodations, contact at (205) 934-8020 or dldada@uab.edu.
