Fairs

The Center for Service & Social Justice hosts a Volunteer and Service Learning Fair each September.  We invite local non-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 service learning.  Each year the fair is attended by over 60 agencies and 700 students.

The date of the next Volunteer and Service Fair is scheduled for Tuesday, September 9, 2014 from 11am to 1pm in the McIlhenny Ballroom of The DeNaples Center, 4th floor.  For more information on the Volunteer and Service Fair, contact Ellen Judge at ellen.judge@scranton.edu.

The Center for Service & Social Action and Campus Ministries collaborate by hosting a fair in November each year for students interested in doing a year or more of service after graduation.  The Post Graduate Fair invites agencies from all over the country to come and meet with students 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 Shephard Volunteers.  Our  next scheduled volunteer fair is Tuesday, November 19th from 5-7pm in the DeNaples Center Ballroom, 4th floor.

For more information on long term service, please contact Cathy Seymour, Campus Minister, at catherine.seymour@scranton.edu  or Pat Vaccaro, Director of The Center for Service & Social Justice, at patricia.vaccaro@scranton.edu
