Montana Tech Hosts Volunteer Fair
Montana Tech Career Services will sponsor the 3rd Annual Montana Tech Fall Volunteer Fair on Wednesday, October 2, 2013. This will be a great opportunity for local non-profit organizations to network with talented Montana Tech students and one another!
Each Volunteer Fair brings volunteers and organizations together in one convenient place. Volunteerism, an important part of the college experience, teaches students valuable lessons in community engagement and using their education to serve their communities. It also allows students to gain experience while helping community partners to address critical needs. “This is important for our office to stress to students that volunteering makes a difference in the community where you live,” says Sarah Raymond, Director of Career Services. “Whether this helps a student to develop skills, meet new people or clarify career goals, it is an invaluable experience. This event is simply the right thing to do!”
The Volunteer Fair on October 2nd will be held from 11 AM – 1 PM in the Montana Tech Student Union Building (SUB) Copper Lounge. We look forward to this opportunity to help organizations network with students who are interested in giving back to their community. This is a free event for non-profit organizations, students, and campus and community members. Organizations can register online through DIGGERecruiting at www.mtech.edu/career.
This year, the Career Services office is coordinating a collection for Locks of Love and the Nursing Club is coordinating a toilet paper drive. Career Services wants to recognize those students who make a difference in our community with a Montana Tech “I make a difference” t-shirt promoting the organizations that have participated in the Volunteer Fair. Each student who attends the Volunteer Fair to sign up as a volunteer for one of the local area non-profits, donate hair (10” or more) or bring a wrapped toilet paper donation will receive a shirt.
Whether or not you can attend the fair, you can reach out to Montana Tech students online regarding any opportunities within your organization. Post these opportunities as volunteer jobs through DIGGERecruiting. Contact Career Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406.496.4140 with any questions.
