To my fellow students:
Iowa City is full of amazing volunteer opportunities but many students haven’t taken advantage of that. I’m inviting you to join a community of dedicated volunteers at The Crisis Center of Johnson County.
During my junior year at the University of Iowa, I started volunteering in The Crisis Center Food Bank, helping local families get groceries they desperately need. I love knowing I’m contributing to the fight against food insecurity, especially because more people are in need and visiting our food bank than ever right now.
I want you to join us as a Crisis Center volunteer. We have opportunities available in the Food Bank and Crisis Intervention programs. Students interested in social work, mental health, and other fields will benefit enormously from training and volunteering at The Crisis Center.
Plus, the time commitment is totally manageable–I volunteer for just three hours each week and my shift is always on the same day of the week. I’ve also been able to build important relationships with my fellow volunteers as well as some clients.
Volunteering at The Crisis Center can change your life. But the first step is to apply: https://www.jccrisiscenter.org/volunteer-now/
Apply online by Friday, February 17, to join one of The Crisis Center’s spring volunteer training courses.
