Y-Days Sept. 24-30 focuses on service, voter registration

Brigham Young University students will get involved in civic and community service during Y-Days Saturday, Sept. 24-30.

The Center for Service and Learning has partnered with BYUSA’s Vote Project and Battle of the Bands to present this year’s Y-Week themed “Y-vote, Y-serve, Y-rock.”

The tradition of Y-Days began in 1906 when the “Y” was painted on the mountain overlooking campus, and it continues each year with a week devoted to service.

Y-week will kick off Saturday, Sept. 24, at 8 a.m. with an I-15 clean-up project. Students will meet at Pioneer Park for the project, and the first 100 volunteers who serve for at least an hour will receive free admission to a Battle of the Bands at BYU that evening. Students can also participate in another service project at 10 a.m. in Brigham Square on campus.

Students are invited to participate in hands-on service projects for children, making toys, coloring books and building blocks, every day that week from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., as well as Thursday, Sept. 29, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., in Brigham Square.

The Service Center will host an activities night for people with disabilities Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 6:45 p.m., and students will color flipbooks for the Provo Headstart School Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m., in the Garden Court of the Wilkinson Student Center.

Throughout the week, students can register to vote from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at booths in the Tanner Building, Spencer W. Kimball Tower, Harold B. Lee Library and Wilkinson Student Center.

For more information on Y-Days, please contact Megan Klinger at (801) 787-3452 or Tamara Gordon at (801) 376-7778.
