Student working on playgroundAdams State Cares service day is an engaging fall tradition at Adams State. The event began in 2001 when United Campus Ministry and the Mi Animo youth program joined forces with Newman Club and Black Student Alliance to serve at three Alamosa project sites. Adams State Cares is now an all-campus event that involves over 200 Adams State volunteers who serve on the same day at multiple project sites throughout the San Luis Valley.

Volunteers can be found socializing dogs & cats at the Valley Humane League, documenting gravestones at the Monte Vista cemetery, and working on trails with SLV Great Outdoors, to name just a few. Whether indoors or outdoors, find a project that feels right for you!
