At Vanguard, we value service in the local church, in the community, and through campus ministries. As a university, we believe that by utilizing the education you are receiving, you can have a larger Kingdom impact by both developing your own skills and talents and also sharing them with the larger community. You can find some of your opportunities linked on the map below.
Most opportunities can accommodate pairs or groups of people! Just check with the volunteer organization first and have your friend(s) sign up too and fill out any forms or waivers that they ask for as well.
Definitely! Most non-profit organizations run during normal office hours (8am-5pm, Monday-Friday) and host many volunteer opportunities during those times. Also many educational or after-school programs run on weekdays in the afternoon as well. Just look through our partners below and you'll be able to find a place to serve on weekdays!
Though we can't guarantee there will be any spots left, Second Harvest Food Bank has multiple 3-hour shifts Tuesday-Saturday that you could potentially sign up for the day of (if there are openings). Laundry Love is another that takes no training or pre-orientation, but it only runs one Thursday a month. If you still need help brainstorming somewhere to serve, feel free to email us at email@example.com or stop by our office on the 1st floor of Scott for some extra help.
Yes! On-campus recruiting is a great way to engage students for jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities. In order to be approved for on-campus recruiting, please fill out the On-Campus Recruiting Request. We have a committee that will review your information and will get back to you as to the status of your request.
On-campus recruiting requests must be submitted 30 days prior to your recruiting date.
PLEASE NOTE if you do not show up on your scheduled date for on campus recruiting without prior notification, per our policy, you will have to re-apply in the following semester.
