Barnard College Community Service Fair

Thursday, October 6, 2011
11:30AM to 2PM
Diana Center, Event Oval

Sponsored by the Office of Community Development and the New York City Civic Engagement Program, the Barnard College Community Service Fair aims to connect Barnard College and Columbia University students, staff, and faculty with local community organizations in need of volunteers for their programs.  The Community Service Fair is open to all students of Barnard College and Columbia University (including Columbia College, School of Engineering and Applied Science, School of General Studies, School of International and Public Affairs, etc.), as well as all faculty and administrators.

We are also pleased to announce Barnard College is now a Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.  The New York City Civic Engagement Program will certify volunteer hours for all Barnard students, alumnae, faculty, and staff for purposes of the award.

Please take a look at this list of community organizations participating in the Community Service Fair and the volunteer openings they have available.  If you are looking for volunteer opportunities for your group, take a look at this list of organizations with available group volunteer opportunities.
