Encouraging students to volunteer in the US
15 November 2006, 15:20
by Vicki Burkhart

My name is Vicki Burkhart and I work in the Civic Engagement Center at Central Washington University. I coordinate a program called Central to the Community that mobilizes students and staff from our campus to donate their time in the local community. For International Volunteer Day we will be holding a reception in our Student Union building to celebrate the work of our volunteers this quarter and to recruit volunteers for next quarter. Students and staff will have the opportunity to learn about the needs of our local non-profit organizations and sign up to volunteer their time.
