On Tuesday, Sept. 17, the Career and Employment Centre held their first annual Volunteer Fair in the Great Hall, and according to Laurentian University’s Student Employment Advisor, Todd Gagnon, this event gives opportunity to students to get involved.

“The idea of wanting to do a volunteer fair was to give first years to masters graduates a chance to dive in,” said Gagnon. “For first and second years, the idea is to volunteer, give back and be part of this community.”

There were over 30 organizations gathered in the Great Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. offering students a chance to volunteer in their respected fields of interest. Such groups include the ALS Society, Canadian Red Cross, and the City of Greater Sudbury.
