Volunteers provide necessary insight and enthusiasm at the JKWC! Each semester, the JKWC identifies three tracks for volunteer work. Student volunteers select a track at the bi-annual Volunteer Training. Then, they work together to research and plan events that surround the topics of interest. Please contact jkwc@scranton.edu for more information. Volunteers are not limited to the three tracks, if you are interested in becoming involved with the JKWC through a different route, please let us know!
