Volunteer Opportunities Fair

Volunteer Opportunities Fair Thursday, September 28th 10:30am-1:30pm Havener Atrium

The Volunteer Opportunities Fair (previously Civic Engagement Fair) and Service-Learning Symposium are events that encourage our campus to become active contributors to our community!  Visit our annual fair and symposium September 28th, 2017 in the Havener Center!  Local nonprofit organizations and service-learning community partners, as well as service-oriented student organizations will host booths at the fair to share about what they do and how you can get involved!

Students, are you:

  • Interested in all of the different ways to become active on campus and with the surrounding community?
  • Interested in joining a student organization whose main focus is to provide service opportunities to S&T students?
  • Interested in raising awareness of your organization’s philanthropy to the campus community?

The Department of Student Life strives to:

  • Create a conduit for students, staff, faculty, organizations and community partners to build connections and promote service.
  • Increase awareness of service opportunities that will broaden the perspective of students at S&T and encourage students to reach out to groups that are different from them.
  • Encourage students to both advocate for and participate in service as active citizens in the Rolla community.
  • Provide community partners and service organizations an opportunity to raise awareness of current social justice issues that face the surrounding area and create opportunities for students at S&T to be involved as active change agents.

The Rolla Mission

The Mission is an exclusively volunteer-run 501©3 charity that exists to be a refuge for the disadvantaged. We accomplish this through four primary services: Free laundromat,
Shower, Meals, and A safe place to belong.  For the winter months we will also open overnight for those who have nowhere else to go.  We are passionate about serving the most vulnerable members of our community in practical ways. We could not accomplish that goal without the support of those who volunteer their time and resources.

US Peace Corps

As the preeminent international service organization of the United States, the Peace Corps sends Americans abroad to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world. Peace Corps volunteers work at the grassroots level with local governments, schools, communities, small businesses and entrepreneurs to develop sustainable solutions that address challenges in education, health, economic development, agriculture, environment and youth development. When they return home, volunteers bring their knowledge and experiences – and a global outlook – back to the United States that enriches the lives of those around them. President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps in 1961 to foster a better understanding among Americans and people of other countries. Since then, more than 215,000 Americans of all ages have served in 139 countries worldwide.
