Montana Tech Hosting Volunteer Fair
Montana Tech Career Services and the Institute for Educational Opportunities have partnered to sponsor the 2nd Annual Fall Montana Tech Volunteer Fair on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. This will be a great opportunity for local non-profit organizations to take advantage of a rich, untapped, local resource…Montana Tech students!
Each Volunteer Fair brings volunteers and organizations together in one convenient place. Volunteerism is an important part of the college experience. It teaches students valuable lessons in community engagement and using their education to serve their communities. Volunteerism also allows students to gain 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. “In addition, donating time to develop skills is valuable for the student. Helping students while assisting the community is a win-win for Montana Tech as well as Butte.”
The Volunteer Fair on October 24th will be held from 11 AM – 1 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, students, campus and community members. 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.
