Back the Bend 2019 is a continuation of the annual service event, formerly called CommUniversity Day. This is the tenth year that the University of Notre Dame has partnered with the South Bend community and other local colleges and universities to carry out upwards of twenty service projects on a Saturday in April. In its best year over 600 volunteers participated in this day of service.

We believe it is everyone’s place to contribute to our community. Our slogan, “Together, It’s Our Place,” speaks to this belief and emphasizes the importance of collective action to build and maintain a flourishing community. This necessitates more than one day of service, but in coming together to accomplish meaningful projects, we strive to encourage relationships and partnerships that last far beyond this single day.

Community partners involved in providing volunteer projects for Back the Bend 2019 include Rebuilding Together, the Robinson Community Learning Center, South Bend Venues, Parks, and Arts, Unity Gardens, and various others. 

This year Back the Bend will be taking place on Saturday, April 27th. Click on the Projects tab to learn about this year's service opportunities.
