Annual Volunteer Fair

SILD's ninth annual NIU Volunteer Fair being held on Sunday, August 24, 2014 from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.  at Northern Illinois University! This event will take place in the Art Gallery Lounge in the Holmes Student Center.

This year, the Volunteer Fair will be held in conjunction with our Involvement Fair which is a part of the Welcome Days 2014 calendar of events. The Volunteer Fair offers table space for community organizations to display and speak to students about volunteer opportunities your agency may have available. The Volunteer Fair is an important tool for our students to learn about community resources in addition to volunteer openings that are available within our community.

The  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 2015 (Saturday, April 18, 2015), our day-long, campus-wide volunteerism event that takes place throughout DeKalb County.
