Volunteer Fair


This year's Volunteer Fair took place on October 25, 2017 from 12-2 pm in the Quarry Plaza.

Held each fall annually, the fall Volunteer Fair gives UCSC students the opportunity to get connected with local Santa Cruz community nonprofits. 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's services, to meet participating organizations, and find volunteer opportunities with causes you are passionate about.

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.

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 volunteer@ucsc.edu.
