Volunteer with Kids Awarded Women’s Giving Circle Funding

Posted June 8th, 2011 by staff

Volunteer with Kids has been awarded $10,427 from the OSU Women’s Giving Circle to continue their work in to the 2011-12 school year!

Volunteer With Kids is a partnership of precollege programs that are working together to equip and connect students at Oregon State University with volunteer and paid opportunities to work with youth. Experiences with youth can help university students develop skills that are applicable to any job, including leadership, teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving,professionalism, and communication.

In order to facilitate this process, there is a dedicated website and e-mail newsletter to inform students about volunteer opportunities. Additionally, in order to help students gain the knowledge and skills necessary to work with youth, there will be a series of 1-hour workshops that students can take over the course of the year, culminating in an exciting and exhilarating experience with the Challenge Ropes Course at OSU.

By participating in these workshops, and completing 5 hours of volunteer time with youth, students will receive a Volunteering With Youth certificate that can be highlighted in resumes, cover-letters, and job interviews.
