Announcements and Upcoming Events

2019 Fall Volunteer Fair, Wednesday, October 2nd, 11:00am – 2:00pm, Service-Learning and Volunteer Programs will be hosting the 2019 Fall Volunteer Fair in the Sykes Ballrooms!  Make sure to stop by and connect with over 50 community and government agencies!  All students, faculty, and staff are welcome so please stop by and bring a friend.  It’s a great feeling to get involved and help your community!

THE QUESTION IS…. WHY VOLUNTEER? - When asked this question of many WCU student volunteers, this is what they shared.. “You step outside of yourself where your helping others and it’s not all about you.”  “You get to meet other students and make new friends.” “You learn more about the community around you.”  “You can take a break from your stressful day and mix it up a bit by serving others”.  So now, the question is WHY NOT?  Stop by our office for more information or assistance in finding a volunteer opportunity that’s right for you! 

Emergency Volunteer Team  In the event of an emergency such as a natural disaster, WCU is designated by the state of Pennsylvania as an Emergency Response Center.  To enact an Emergency Response plan on campus, we need student volunteers ready and eager to assist when needs arise. For example, we experienced a major ice storm a few years ago where we opened a 200-person emergency shelter on campus. Joining this team does not necessitate your attendance if an event were to occur, but instead is allowing us to contact you to inquire if you are able to help should the event arise.  Students can join the team by filling out a simple form  here.
