Make A Difference Day 2017: Agency Registration
Thank you for your interest in serving as a site and hosting GVSU volunteers for Make a Difference Day 2017 on Saturday, October 21, 2017. This is a national day of service and GVSU’s Community Service Learning Center has participated for over 15 years. We consider this a fall campus tradition for GVSU students and look forward to having more than 350 students serving local nonprofit agencies across the greater Grand Rapids/Allendale area.
We are looking for nonprofit agencies that can accommodate groups of ten or more student volunteers from 11:00am to 3:00pm. There will be a sack lunch provided by GVSU from 2:30pm - 3:00pm and students will be led in a reflection of the experiences by their student leader during this time. It is encouraged that a representative from the host site engage in reflection with the volunteers. Participants will then be picked up by bus at 3:00 p.m. and returned to the Allendale Campus.
Deadline for Application: Wednesday, August 16, at 5:00pm.
PLEASE NOTE: In an attempt to ensure that there are a variety of agencies representing a diverse selection of community needs as well as offering appropriate volunteer work for college student, we will be reviewing all submissions and will notify the contact person listed no later than Monday August 21st to verify participation of your agency.
