SERVE Center to Host Volunteer Fair Feb. 17

Truman’s SERVE Center has invited numerous area community agencies to campus for a Volunteer Fair meant to educate students about local organizations and to recruit volunteers.

The Volunteer Fair will take place from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Feb. 17 in collaboration with the Career Center’s Nonprofit Conference. The SERVE Center, along with the Spring 2011 Structured Inequalities class in the Sociology and Anthropology Department, will sponsor this event.

Several area agencies, including the Salvation Army and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), will attend the fair. This will be a valuable opportunity for Truman students to learn more about needs and services in the Kirksville area and for community agencies to recruit volunteers to enhance their service efforts.

The SERVE Center will also host the Big Event this semester on March 19.

The SERVE Center acts as a liaison between the campus and the community by matching volunteer interests with appropriate agencies in the community. The Center provides students with out-of-classroom service opportunities which enhance their liberal arts education by offering real world experiences, aiding in developing leadership skills, personal skills and social responsibility.
