Snapshots: 2019 Volunteer Expo

Students were able to interact with local non-profit organizations at Webster University' first Volunteer Expo co-hosted by The Career Planning and Development Center and Student Employment Program.

The event highlighted organizations involved in the Community Service Work-Study Programwhile giving local non-profits an opportunity to promote and showcase their volunteer roles available throughout the year.

“Service based experiential learning is an opportunity for our students to hone workplace professional skills while making a direct impact in the St. Louis region,” said John Link, Director, Career Planning and Development Center. “Volunteer service, regardless if it is ongoing or short-term, is a form of experience that can be referenced in application materials for future employment.”

Megan Moncure, Manager of Outreach & Volunteers for Gateway Greening, shared her enthusiasm for the event stating, "It was such a well-run event, I really appreciate it. I already connected one of your students to a community garden in Webster Groves to volunteer.”

The Career Planning and Development Center and Student Employment Program would like to thank all the faculty, staff and students who participated making this such a successful event.
