Community Service

Student Involvement & Leadership Development is pleased to invite you to our 10th annual NIU Volunteer Fair at Northern Illinois University!

The Volunteer Fair will be held in conjunction with the University’s Involvement Fair which is a part of the Welcome Days 2014 calendar of events. This will result in a large turnout of NIU students! The Volunteer Fair offers table space for community organizations to display and speak to students about volunteer opportunities your agency may have available. Student organizations with missions geared toward service will be present as well.

The fair will give your organization the opportunity to recruit NIU students to volunteer for your organization. The Volunteer Fair is also an important tool for our students to learn about community resources in addition to volunteer openings that are available within our community.

The Volunteer Fair is a great opportunity for our students to not only gain first-hand information regarding all the volunteer possibilities in the greater DeKalb area, but also to continue building the momentum toward NIU Cares Day 2016 (Saturday, April 16, 2016), our day-long, campus-wide volunteerism event that takes place throughout DeKalb County.

Volunteerism and service are community-based initiatives, and for that reason, the Fair cannot be a success without the involvement of DeKalb area service organizations such as yours!
