Volunteering at a college and or university has its advantages; however, navigating when everything has turned virtual can be challenging. Join us as we travel (virtually) down the halls of our local educational institutions in an effort to navigate the proper channels of volunteer recruitment.

In this session, we will discuss:

  • Hidden volunteer opportunities
  • Policy and Procedure changes
  • Engagement and Recruitment

Our campus partners recognize the benefits of volunteer work and will be available to show innovative ways to reduce barriers and encourage non-profits to connect with student volunteers.
