Black Hills State University will hold its Fourth Annual Volunteer Fair Tuesday, Sept. 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. under the skywalk of the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union.
The theme for this year’s volunteer fair, hosted by the AmeriCorps*VISTA Community-University-Resource-Exchange (C-U-R-E) office, is based on a quote by politician Shirley Chisholm that states: “Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth.”
Over 20 community groups are expected to attend and will provide information and answer questions about volunteer options within their organizations. These groups are looking for individuals or student organizations to volunteer for a wide variety of projects. This is a great opportunity for students, faculty and staff to help others, connect with the community and build a resume.
The C-U-R-E office is the center for volunteering, community outreach and support for service-learning on the BHSU campus. The office keeps track of community volunteer opportunities available to students, staff and faculty members, as well as working to create more service activities on campus.
The program is run by Sarah Hanify, an AmeriCorps*VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America), who is available to assist members of the BHSU community throughout the year. For more information contact Hanify at 642-6471.
