CCE Hosts First Annual Service Fair

On Tuesday, August 26, the Center for Community Engagement held its first annual Volunteer Service Fair, featuring a variety of community partners hosting tables at the French A. See Dinning Center to inform Wesleyan faculty, staff and students of their local organizations and causes. Before the Service Fair began, community partners took time to attend a short workshop led by Dr. Kim Yousey, Dean of Community Engagement, and Brooke Rawson, AmeriCorps VISTA Member.
