Non-Profit Fair connects students to volunteering

By Briana Williams–

The Honors Student Council held the Non-Profit Fair on Oct. 19, giving students a chance to learn about local and national non-profits.

Over 50 organizations were in attendance, including RaiseRED and Relay For Life. Students were able to learn more about the organizations and ways to get involved.

“We wanted students to come out and have the opportunity to talk to the organizations and gain connections,” Honors Student Council member Danielle Deal said.

Deal explained that the fair is especially important for those who want to volunteer but may not know where to start. “We want to make sure that we are connecting the campus community to the larger city of Louisville,” Deal said.

Volunteering connections and inciting career interests in students were major factors in the fair’s planning.

“Students can use these connections for volunteering, internships and potential job interests. So it’s really important we give them (students) the resources they want and need,” Deal said.
