Fairs

Volunteer and Service Fair for Undergraduates

Campus Ministries' Center for Service & Social Justice hosts a Volunteer and Service Fair each September.  We invite local non-profit agencies to come to campus to recruit volunteers for their programs in areas such as health and hospice care, children and youth, elderly, social justice, food and housing programs, poverty and homelessness and hands on projects.  Student volunteers get the opportunity to meet directly with non-profit agency representatives and find out what types of service opportunities are available in the Scranton community, time commitments, and information about community based learning.  Each year the fair is attended by over 65 agencies and 700 students.

When is the next fair?

The date of the next Volunteer and Service Fair is scheduled for Tuesday, September 12, 2017 from 11am to 1pm in the McIlhenny Ballroom of The DeNaples Center, 4th floor.  For more information or to request a table at the Volunteer and Service Fair, contact our Director, Patricia.Vaccaro@scranton.edu

Campus Ministries' Center for Service & Social Action annual Post-Graduate Volunteer Service Fair will be partnering for the first time with the Center for Career Development’s Fall Career Fair on Friday, September 29, 2017, from 11am until 2pm in the Byron Center.

More than two dozen recruiters, from organizations that place volunteers both domestically and internationally, will meet with students interested in doing a year or more of service after graduation to present opportunities to serve and gain experience in their chosen fields.  Some examples are Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Capuchin Franciscan Corps, Mercy Volunteer Corps, and Good Shepherd Volunteers.
