Get involved through service.
At the beginning of the academic year, St. Edward’s hosts the Nonprofit & Volunteer Fair. Attendees at the fair can expect to interact with nonprofit organizations from the Austin community, university-sponsored organizations that focus on serving the community, and domestic and international post-graduate volunteer opportunities. Representatives promote volunteer opportunities, internships, and possible jobs within their organizations.
The Nonprofit & Volunteer Fair is a great time to look for that new volunteer opportunity or gain valuable experience in an internship. If you are graduating in May, you may want to stop by and visit with some of the organizations offering post-graduate opportunities. This event takes place mid-September.
Some organizations in attendance in the past have included:
Alliance for Catholic Education
Caritas of Austin
Colorado Vincentian Volunteers
Kinds in a New Groove
Ronald McDonald House Charities
Side by Side Kids
and many more.
