“Volunteers don’t just do the work, they make it work.” –Carol Pettit
The Volunteer Services Opens at GSW. Courtney Riggs , AmeriCorps*VISTA–Communities In Schools of Georgia, GSW Volunteer Services Intern and Student, developed the Georgia Southwestern State University Volunteer Services project with the support of Joshua Curtin, Director of Student Life. The Volunteer Services will provide volunteer opportunities with the following partnership agencies: Communities In Schools of Sumter County/LEAP- Mentoring Partnership, Habitat for Humanity, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Rosalyn Carter Institute and other organizations that strive to serve others. The goal of Volunteer Services is to enrich the educational experience for students, faculty and staff at Georgia Southwestern by fostering collaborative relationships and partnerships within the community.
Anyone who wishes to volunteer are encouraged to stop by the Office of Volunteer Services Room 3464 in the Student Success Center, or visit this page regularly for opportunities to get involved and make a positive difference in the community.
