This year’s Big Event is on April 7, 2018Sign up with a group or as an individual to participate as a volunteer in one of our community service projects during The Big Event here: http://vtbigevent.org/volunteer.

Projects are completed regardless of need or socioeconomic status; instead, it is The Big Event’s goal to simply say, “Thank you.” Seeded in our university’s motto of Ut Prosim (That I may serve) students and community members come together for a truly unparalleled experience.
