Body of the review

The Office of Public Service within University Outreach has been hosting a virtual volunteer fair since 2019 as part of the AuburnServes initiative. AuburnServes gives students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to submit an opportunity or volunteer with our community partners. This fall, we are partnering with a number of local nonprofit organizations in the Lee County and Macon areas to sponsor our Virtual Fall Volunteer Fair during the week of September 12-16.

This event will offer students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to connect virtually with local nonprofits from their phones, laptops, or tablets. The Office of Public Service has noticed an increase in agency volunteer needs, fueling its desire to revolutionize the way it creates student events on campus.

The Virtual Volunteer Fair will showcase the great work that these local non-profit and government organizations are undertaking in this diverse community. These organizations focus on areas such as housing, education, art, food insecurity and more. The office expects to attract a diverse group of people who are passionate about community and service. Everyone is invited to access the Volunteer Fair for opportunities and general information about the incredible work these nonprofits do in Lee and Macon County.

This is a chance for students who have service projects to do in the upcoming school year to connect with these organizations. It’s also a fun way for residents to learn about local initiatives and how they can help locally.
