Description

Happy New Year! Hard to believe another year is here and it’s that time again!

Your organization is invited to participate in the Volunteer Opportunity Fair at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus of Montgomery College on Wednesday, Feb 13, 2019 from 10 am to 2 pm. This is an opportunity for you to recruit volunteers, be they students, faculty, or staff. The Volunteer Fair is an opportunity for you to share information about your organization and recruit volunteers.

For many students, this day is an opportunity for them to talk with you directly about your organization's needs, and to secure a meaningful service experience that matches their interest, skills, any course requirements, possible profession choice or career exploration. For other students and/or their families, they may be in need of your services.

There is no fee for organizations to participate. You will be provided a 6’ table and chair (unless you are willing to share a table, then plan for 3’ of display space), free parking in our college garage, and a lunch!

SHARE A TABLE ? Because of space limitations, the number of tables is limited. I really want to keep all the organizations on the 1st floor of the Atrium. That may mean sharing a table for some of you. Please respond accordingly to that question on the registration form if you only need 3’ of display space. You will get to know another organization well by the day’s end. Many thanks in advance.

Note: Pending number of registrations, answering yes, you will share a table, doesn’t mean you will be.

PLEASE submit only ONE registration for your organization. On the registration form click ONE TICKET. No matter how many people from your organization will be at the Fair. Further on in the registration form, there is a place to tell me how many are attending.

SNOW DATE: Feb. 20, 2019 (Since I have a snow date, it will not snow.)

SET-UP: You may set up anytime after 8:30 a.m., so feel free to arrive early and stay late, at least through the afternoon. Many students have a full schedule of classes in the morning and count on being able to meet with you after 12:00 pm. Thank you in advance for making an effort to stay.

WHY STUDENTS VOLUNTEER: For many students, service in the community is incorporated into their coursework, much like a reading or research assignment, and is related to a learning objective. Sometimes, this is an option for extra credit or in lieu of another assignment.

Students may want or need to get experience in a field before deciding on a major area of study, or before transferring to a four year educational institution. Students also want to confirm their career/profession choice by getting experience in that field, or to strengthen their applications.

What to Bring: Fact Sheet about your organization. This should include a short description of your organization, the types of volunteer positions and needs of your organization, the contact person, web link to sign up/ website. Plan to bring several hundred copies. Candy and giveaways are always a draw to your table but not expected or mandatory. Bring a tablecloth if you like. This will also help differentiate your table.

Please register for your table at the Fair as soon as possible.

Space is limited for this event. Registration will be on a first-come, first served basis!

PARKING: You will be sent via email a temporary permit to park in the MC Garage Parking. Print out and put on your dash. College garage is one short block away.

SHARE THIS INVITATION: If you know of an organization that you think would be interested in participating in the Fair, you may forward this information.
