Full Title: The Shriver Center Promotes 3 Ways to Learn to Serve THIS Week of 2/1 There are 3 ways to learn about Service-Learning opportunities through The Shriver Center during the week of 2/1: 1. Walk-in Hours THIS Tuesday, 2/2 - Thursday, 2/4, 9am-4pm at The Shriver Center, 1st floor of the Public Policy Building, just past the elevators. No appointment necessary to learn how to link your interest in helping others with a transcript notation and opportunities to earn credit! 2. Involvement Fest - the Service/Social Action Component of the Office of Student Life's three day action-packed event is on Tuesday, 2/2 from 11am-2pm on Main Street in the Commons. Representatives from over 10 service sites will be in attendance to answer any questions. 3. The Shriver Center is hosting its 2nd Annual Service-Learning Fair THIS Friday, February 5th from 11:30am-1:30pm on Main Street in The Commons. Nearly 30 community partners and schools will be coming to campus to meet one-on-one with students about their volunteer opportunities. On-site Service-Learning registration and 096 Practicum enrollment will be available, as well as information about how to receive a transcript notation for service. EXCITING NEWS!!! The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, Inc. (BARCS) will be bringing along some dogs from the shelter that are in need of adoption! Look for them on the Terrace, right outside of Main Street. BARCS came out last April during Volunteer Week - the dog in need of adoption was such a sweetheart and loved the attention! Feel free to contact us at The Shriver Center with any questions, the 1st floor of the Public Policy Building or email Clare Greene (clare6@umbc.edu), Melissa Huselton (huselton@umbc.edu) or Lori Hardesty (lhardesty@umbc.edu)! You can also just stop by at any of these events!
