The Trailblazer One-Day Community Service program offers you the opportunity to participate in projects that not only connect you to the surrounding community, but provide service to our community partners. Many times the projects and sites where you participate foster connections for future service throughout your time at UNE. You arrive one day before Traditional Orientation to participate in various theme service projects. UNE Trailblazer in the Community Guides, who are current UNE students, provide both opening and closing team building activities, and allow time for reflection afterwards in which you share your experiences. Guides also provide a history of the sites and work with our community partners to frame the different projects. There is time throughout the experience for you to connect with the guides and to ask them questions about life at UNE. Previous sites have included soup kitchens, farms, beach clean-ups, trail work, fish hatcheries, and many more.
