Day of Service  

The VSB Mentor Program participates in the university’s annual St. Thomas Day of Service. Members of the Program are encouraged to participate via the VSB Mentor Program’s group. This is a great opportunity to not only give back to the community but also meet other mentees and mentors who are a part of the Program.
