Fair showcases volunteer and internship opportunities to students

By Mark Schulman

The Sixth Annual Volunteer and Internship Fair was held on Oct. 1 in the U.C. lounge. The Career Services Center and the Leadership and Service Program (LSOP) co-sponsored the event bringing in 28 agencies, businesses and schools from around the region offering many internship and community service opportunities to students.

Freshman Megan Grimsley said, “The fair is a wonderful opportunity for students to find out which companies and organizations need volunteer work.”

Organizations gave out pens, candy and other treats along with brochures providing information of the volunteer work and internships available.

This is the third year that Paula Archambault has participated in the fair offering volunteer work at West Hoke Middle School in Raeford.

“Our children love to see UNCP students visit the school,” said Archambault, “and this fair gives us the wonderful opportunity to bring in fresh faces.”

Director of Leadership and Community Service Melanie Clark said, “The fair is valuable for the students to interact and share opportunities with the agencies and internships.

“It is also valuable for the agencies,” Clark said, “to share what UNCP has to offer the community.”
