The campus is invited to learn about different ways its members can make a difference in their community at the Fall Meet ‘n Greet Volunteer Fair on the Alumni Quad (between Thompson Hall and the university library) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20.
In the event of rain, the event will be held in the main lounge at the Hammond Campus Center.
Students will learn how targeted volunteerism can give them a valuable head start in the professional world, while all participants will have a chance to win a seasonal basket full of prizes.
Refreshments will be served at the event.
The Volunteer Fair provides students a glimpse into see the breadth of opportunities that could provide them work experience or future placement in agencies related to their majors. At the same time, the fair allows local agencies to tap into the resource of students.
More than 20 groups will be represented at the event, including national programs like Habitat for Humanity and local organizations such as the Fitchburg Art Museum.
“This is a prime opportunity for students to get involved with opportunities that will not only help their community, but give them major specific work experience and add to a stellar resume,” said Beth Robbins from the university’s Volunteer Center. “It’s such a win-win.”
