Help your community while building skills to advance your career.
Volunteering is more than just your opportunity to help a good cause; make a difference in your community; or build lifelong friendships—it can also have a major impact on your career and academic future. Working in the community helps you develop your personal and professional skills, learn more about various workplaces and jobs, and meet and network with new people. On top of all that, it looks great on resumes and college applications!
In this community-centered event, students will support a local homeless shelter by purchasing supplies and creating personal care kits for residents. In addition to the other benefits of community service, students will practice:
- Orientation & Mobility skills
- Social skills
- Problem solving
Participating students will receive a letter of recommendation for use in academic records and/or applications.
Free! Lunch provided.
