CCE On Volunteering
Students have numerous and varied opportunities to volunteer throughout their time at Bard, but are sometimes not sure how to get started or are worried about overcommitting. The CCE has information about local agencies interested in volunteers with commitments ranging from weekly visits to one-time projects.
Annual Volunteer Fair
Each September, CCE joins community organizations to cosponsor a volunteer fair with more than 40 agencies recruiting Bard students, high school students, families, and local residents to volunteer. Planning begins each spring as collaborators from Red Hook and Kingston reach out to nonprofits, NGOs, and schools. Positions on the 2013 planning committee are available by contacting Karen Gardner at email@example.com or contacting the CCE at 845-758-7453.
