Discover rewarding opportunities to get involved and gain experience

September 15, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. (drop-in)

Volunteering and community engagement are great ways to try out new things, gain experience and support your professional development. Join us at the Online Community Engagement and Volunteer Fair, where you can connect directly with volunteer organizations on our online fair platform, Brazen.

How do you want to get involved?

Volunteering and community engagement can take many forms. At the Online Community Engagement and Volunteer Fair, you’ll get to explore your options so you can decide on an experience that works for you.

Here’s how it will work:

  • Drop in to the fair any time between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on September 15.
  • Participate in one-on-one text, audio or video chats with organization representatives.
  • Share your interests and experience to help you find an organization and opportunity that fits.
  • Ask all your questions about volunteering and community engagement.
