Are you looking for a way to become more engaged in your community but aren’t sure where to begin? Kellogg Community College’s Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fair is a good place to start.
Sixteen community organizations will be on hand at the fair beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 27, to help individuals learn about ways to become more involved in their communities.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Student Services walkway on KCC’s North Avenue campus, 450 North Ave., Battle Creek.
KCC students and others interested in community service and service learning will have the chance at the fair to learn about the work and mission of participating organizations and about various needs in the regional Battle Creek area.
“The Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fair is a great opportunity for students and community partners,” said Kate DeGraaf, service learning manager at KCC. “The fair is a fantastic place to find ways to give back and also become more aware of all the services and resources that are available in our community.”
Beginning this year, a service learning endorsement became a requirement for many KCC students pursuing an associate degree at KCC. The Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fair is an easy way for those students to make connections that could assist them in completing their service learning requirements in the future.
