Volunteer Fair

Held each fall annually, the Volunteer Fair gives UCSC students the opportunity to get connected with local Santa Cruz community volunteer organizations. Community organizations join the SVC in the Quarry Plaza (outside the Bay Tree Bookstore) for an afternoon of networking and education on the issues in Santa Cruz. Organizations attend the event to table, promote their efforts, and find eager UCSC students to fill their volunteer needs. Check out the event for more information on the SVC, other participating organizations, and specific volunteer opportunities.

If your organization would like to participate in the next Volunteer Fair, please send an email to the SVC. We send out online invitations to all of the organizations in our database at the beginning of each fall quarter.

The Fall 2016 Volunteer Fair took place at the Quarry Plaza on October 26th from 11 AM - 1 PM.

If you have any questions regarding the event, are an org that would like to participate in future fairs, or are a student that would like to volunteer to help run the event, please contact us at voluntee@ucsc.edu.
