VOLUNTEER AND SERVICE LEARNING FAIR
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2012
MCILHENNY BALLROOM, DENAPLES CENTER 4TH FLOOR
The Community Outreach Office hosts a Volunteer and Service Learning Fair each September. We invite local 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, and hands on projects. Student volunteers get the opportunity to meet directly with 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 70 agencies and 750 students.
The date of the next Volunteer and Service Fair is scheduled for Tuesday, September 11, 2012 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Non-Profit Agencies wishing to register, please download our Agency Invitation and return the response by Tuesday September 4.
The Community Outreach Office and University 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 Monday, 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 email@example.com or Pat Vaccaro, Director of Community Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org
