#StudentServe: How are you giving back this summer?

In June, Googlers will join together to give back in their local communities as part of our 10th annual “GoogleServe.” We know many of you will be doing service in your communities, too—and we’re excited to celebrate the impact you’re making. Share your stories of service in #StudentServe:

  1. Spend time volunteering and take photos (selfies? why not ;))

  2. Share them by tagging @googlestudents using #StudentServe (don’t forget to include your location and how you gave back)

  3. Join our YouTube Live event on Monday, June 5 @ 11:00 - 11:30 a.m. PT to learn more about giving at Google and tips for volunteer management and charitable giving from Diane Sollinger, Director of Google Engagement at Google.org
