Student Life

Forester Day of Service

Each year, the Gates Center for Leadership and Personal Growth organizes a campus-wide day of service where Lake Forest College students, faculty, staff, and alumni volunteer their Saturday to help out the community.

This year, the Forester Day of Service will be Saturday, February 27, 2016. We are again partnering with North Chicago Community Partners to volunteer in the North Chicago schools.

This year’s theme is Oh the Places You Will Go

Lake Forest College volunteers will be paired with a North Chicago school student for a day of enrichment activities. The activities are designed to unite students of different ages from very diverse communities for a day of learning, sharing and relationship building. All students will participate in a variety of hands-on activities centered on the themes of promoting peace and reducing violence, one student, one school, one community at a time.

A full schedule of the day is listed to the right. Volunteer will check-in at the Skybox at 8:30 a.m. before our opening kick off at 9 a.m. More information will be sent out to volunteers in early February.
