UM to Host Fall Volunteer Fair Sept. 13

September 07, 2016

MISSOULA – On Tuesday, Sept. 13, approximately 30 community agencies will gather at the University of Montana to inform students and community members about the volunteer opportunities that are available in the Missoula area.

The Fall Volunteer Fair, which is hosted by UM’s Academic Enrichment Civic Engagement office and the Associated Students of UM student group Volunteers in Action, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the University Center Atrium.

During the fair, attendees can learn about meaningful service opportunities, while agencies will raise awareness and recruit new student volunteers.

Every year, at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, Academic Enrichment Civic Engagement coordinates 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 to meet community needs.
