Looking for local community service opportunities? If so, then look no further! The UHCL Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement (SLICE) program is hosting its second annual Community Service Fair Monday, Sept. 19 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Bayou Atrium I.
All university students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to visit the Community Service Fair and connect with over 20 non-profit agencies from the Houston and Galveston areas. This is a great opportunity to learn more about some of the major non-profits as well as some of the lesser-known agencies.
Those new to volunteering and a little unsure about the experience, consider the many benefits.
“Volunteering fosters a sense of pride in knowing you are giving selflessly of your time,” said Jennifer Clark, assistant director of Student Life –The Center for Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement (SLICE). “You can learn so many valuable skills in teamwork and leadership, and it also connects you to your community.”
Some of the local agencies that will be attending include:
Partnership for the Advancement and Immersion of Refugees (PAIR) Houston
Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Houston
Krist Samaritan Center
Resource and Crisis Center of Galveston County, Inc.
Big Brothers, Big Sisters
Bay Area Turning Point
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center-Be the Match
Baytown Habitat for Humanity , Inc. / Bay Area Houston Habitat for Humanity, Inc.
Houston Food Bank
