Nonprofits recruiting volunteers
Tuesday, September 1, 2009
Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community and build your resume at the same time.
St. Cloud State University’s Volunteer Connection will host a Fall Volunteer and Service-learning Fair that will give students, faculty, staff and other members of the community the opportunity to connect with more than 30 local nonprofit agencies in need of volunteers.
The Volunteer and Service-Learning Fair is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8, in the main lounge of the Atwood Memorial Center.
The Fair is designed to give prospective volunteers an opportunity to learn about the area’s many nonprofit agencies, conveniently arranged in one place. The event also gives community organizations the chance to recruit volunteers.
A few of the agencies that will have representatives available to answer questions and provide information about their volunteer openings include:
The Volunteer Connection office at St. Cloud State holds a fair each semester to encourage students’ civic engagement and promote reciprocal service that benefits both the individual and the community. Faculty members attend to seek out ways to include service-learning or community service in coursework.
