College now offers online resource for volunteer and service learning opportunities
The Career Resource Center at the State University of New York at New Paltz is now offering a free online resource called the Volunteer Connection, where organizations in the Hudson Valley can post their volunteer or service learning opportunities for interested students and alumni of New Paltz.
This online resource, found at www.newpaltz.edu/volunteerconnection, will give SUNY New Paltz students and alumni a brief idea of the specific needs of an organization. Organizations can post onetime, short-term or ongoing projects and, depending on their needs, both individual and groups of students can assist with projects.
Examples include, but are not limited to, tutoring, mentoring, clerical work, mailing, fundraising or special events that require extra assistance.
Service learning is the integration of community service and instruction strategically designed to meet important community needs, improve student learning and foster civic involvement.
More than 50 organizations have posted volunteer and service learning opportunities for New Paltz students and alumni.
All organizations who post opportunities on the SUNY New Paltz Volunteer Connection system, have affirmed their commitment as an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Participating organizations agree that it is their policy not to discriminate against qualified applicants and employees on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, gender, age, national origin, religion, disability, veteran status, marital status, or sexual orientation.
Any person with questions or concerns about the EEO/AA policy should contact the director of the Career Resource Center at (845) 257-3265.
