Annual Volunteer Fair

SILD's tenth annual NIU Volunteer Fair being held on Sunday, August 23, 2015 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 2015 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 2016 (Saturday, April 16, 2016), our day-long, campus-wide volunteerism event that takes place throughout DeKalb County.

Please check back later this summer to find out how to register your non-for-profit community agency!
