Watch Parties

Saturday July 20

To capture the special bonding and fun that only occurs during an in-person event, we're planning Watch Parties across the country to offer an in-person component to this year's event.

What does the Watch Party entail? Attendees of a Watch Party may participate in a local service event, making an impact on that local community. Each Watch Party will broadcast a livestream of the keynote session with Tina VanSteenbergen as well as our National Awards presentation. Food will be provided. The rest of the Watch Party is up to the discretion of the local lead.

There are twelve Watch Parties taking place across the country. Find your local party below!
