The Centre for Student Engagement and Leadership, and Career Services is hosting NC’s fourth annual Get Involved Week October 2 to 6.
Get Involved Week is the ultimate opportunity to showcase the many ways in which students can get involved on and off campus in addition to learning about the benefits of volunteering. Students will be able to network with services on campus as well as organizations from the Niagara community.
Events include volunteer fairs at both the Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake campuses, as well as a Time-Raiser event.
While all volunteer fairs are held are at NC, some are dubbed ‘on-campus’ while others are ‘off-campus,’ based on the type of opportunities being presented to students at the events.
At On-Campus Volunteer Fairs, students have an opportunity to speak with representatives from various departments, services and co-curricular programs on campus, such as peer mentoring, LEAD, sustainability etc. and learn how they can get involved on campus. Students are encouraged to visit the Get Involved – Co-Curricular Record table to learn which opportunities can be included on their CCR.
Off-Campus Volunteer Fairs give students an opportunity to meet and speak with numerous community partners from the Niagara region about volunteering with their organization, and help students gain hands-on experience related to their field of study.
The Time-Raiser event is a unique way for organizations that need volunteers to showcase their specific volunteer opportunities to NC students. Students will be able to network with organizations and find out about a range of volunteer opportunities available throughout the Niagara region. The event will have exciting prizes linked to volunteer positions from different organizations set up as a silent auction, where students bid their time instead of money!
