Spring Volunteer Fair At UM Feb. 11-12

February 05, 2014

MISSOULA – The University of Montana Office for Civic Engagement and Volunteers in Action will host the biannual Spring Volunteer Fair on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 11-12. The fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the University Center Atrium both days.

Students and community members can learn about numerous volunteer opportunities available in the Missoula area from nearly 30 community agencies, which will have the chance to recruit new volunteers.

Every year at the beginning of the fall and spring semester, UM’s Office for Civic Engagement and Volunteers in Action coordinate a volunteer fair to connect interested students, UM faculty and staff, and other members of the community with volunteer opportunities in the Missoula area. The fair helps nonprofit agencies promote their activities and recruit new members in order to meet community-identified needs.

The Office for Civic Engagement also will provide information about several of its programs during the fair.

The Office for Civic Engagement is a department of the Davidson Honors College. It was founded as Volunteer Action Services at UM in 1992 and serves as the University’s primary agent of community activism and civic responsibility.
