Montana Tech hosts 1st Annual Montana Tech Volunteer Fair
The Montana Tech Career Services and Technical Outreach departments have partnered to sponsor the 1st Annual Montana Tech Volunteer Fair on Wednesday, October 12, 2011. This will be a great opportunity for local non-profit organizations to tap into one of Butte’s most valuable resources…student volunteers.
Volunteers are more important than ever with budget cuts looming over many non-profit and government organizations. The Volunteer Fair is an opportunity to bring volunteers and organizations together in one convenient place. Volunteerism, an important part of the college experience, teaches students valuable lessons in community engagement and using their education to serve their communities. It also allows students to gain work experience while helping community partners to address critical needs. “Some employers look for students who not only excel in their studies, but also are civic-minded,” says Sarah Raymond, Director of Career Services. “Helping students while assisting the community is a win-win for campus as well as Butte.”
The Volunteer Fair on October 12th will be held from 10 AM – 2 PM in the Montana Tech Student Union Building (SUB) Copper Lounge. We look forward to this opportunity to help organizations network with students who are interested in giving back to their community.
This is a free event for non-profit organizations and attendees. Organizations can register online through DIGGERecruiting at www.mtech.edu/career. Whether or not you can attend the fair, you can reach out to Montana Tech students online regarding any opportunities within your organization. Post these opportunities as volunteer jobs through DIGGERecruiting. Contact Career Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406.496.4140 with any questions.
