The CU Volunteer Resource Center will host the 2nd Annual Day of Service on Aug. 24, and volunteer opportunities for are still available. Day of Service is meant to introduce new CU students to ongoing volunteerism by connecting them to the resources and long-term needs of the campus and surrounding communities. The vision for this new program is to have all first year students serve in the community one day a year, and that CU students will become more deeply connected with their surrounding communities and learn ways in which they can serve their communities' needs.
This August student volunteers will be working with University Hill Elementary School, Creekside Elementary School and the University Hill Neighborhood Association to beautify the community.
The Volunteer Resource Center is in need of volunteers to help put on Day of Service 2013. Here are the ways you can help:
Sign up to be a Task Captain
Task Captains will be working closely with the project leader, community partner and Volunteer Resource Center to lead, motivate and supervise small groups of volunteers on the Day of Service. Task Captains will act as the specialist or point of contact for a task being completed at one of the three projects.
Volunteer for student Check-in
The Volunteer Resource Center will need help the morning of Day of Service to send the students to their volunteer projects. This will include helping with check in, handing out T-shirts and lunches, and helping direct students to the correct group and bus.
