If your nonprofit offers opportunities for students to engage, you may be wondering how to spread the word. 

  • What motivates students to volunteer?
  • What kind of volunteer opportunities are students drawn to?
  • How do you connect with the universities?

Join us for a panel discussion on May 16th as we have representatives from several Metro Atlanta colleges that will discuss engaging student volunteers.
