Clay and Debbie Jones Center for Leadership and Service: We are partnering with the Jones Center to track your hours of service. Through ServeUTK you will be able to find and sign up for hours through different agencies. If you provide hours at an agency that is not on the list, you are able to input those hours as well by clicking the “Add Impact” button at the top-right side of the page. These hours will be verified by the organization administrator. Any hours that are provided through “band events” must be logged through Dr. Stewart or Ms. Wolfenbarger. You cannot log “band events” through ServeUTK. While we are not providing a pay-per-hour for these outreach opportunities, we will be making note of who is making an an effort to impact their communities as they request financial need.
Passports: If you have not taken care of your passport, this winter break would be the ideal time. The cost of a new passport is $160 while a renewal of a current passport is $135. The expiration date on the passport must be a minimum of SIX MONTHS AFTER the trip (that would be valid past January 3, 2024).
