Service Odyssey is a student-led, immersive community service experience. Participants engage in a variety of service opportunities throughout the Davidson and the greater Charlotte area and learn about the range of social issues that impact these communities. In addition to participation in meaningful service, you will enjoy opportunities to critically reflect on your service work, explore local cultural attractions, and develop lasting relationships with your peers.
In order to remain fully immersed in the community you serve, you will live together with other Odyssey participants at a local church. All participants have safe and secure, but simple, living accommodations.
The cost of Service Odyssey is $200 per student participant. Financial aid and travel stipends are available to all students who qualify for aid at Davidson.
The Service Odyssey is open to all incoming first-year students at Davidson College, including transfers. Register now for the 2019 program.
