Marin County Volunteer Fair to be held October 6th

MARIN, CA – Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) is partnering with County of Marin Civic Center Volunteers Program to produce the Marin County Volunteer Fair on Saturday, October 6th, 2018.

This event will provide an opportunity for individuals to connect with local nonprofit organizations one-on-one. “We are seeing an increase in volunteer need from agencies, fueling our desire to collaborate on this effort,” said Elaine Tokolahi, Director of Volunteer Services at CVNL. “Whether you’re a student, a business owner, enjoying retirement, or are simply curious about volunteer opportunities in Marin and want to meet like-minded people, this event is ideal for you.”

The Fair expects to showcase 50 local nonprofits and government organizations representing diverse community impact areas — from housing, to education, to the arts, and more. The Fair will draw a varied group of people who are passionate about community service. Everyone is welcome to come stroll the Fair at the Marin Civic Center Lagoon Park and learn about volunteer opportunities and general information about the amazing work nonprofits are doing in Marin County.

“This is a great chance for high school students who have service projects to complete in the coming school year to connect with nonprofits,” said Kerry Burke, Volunteer Services Program Coordinator at CVNL. “It’s also a fun way for residents to learn more about causes and how they can help locally.”

Nonprofits interested in showcasing their organizations at the Fair can contact Kerry at 415.448.0323 or or sign up to participate online at Nonprofit participant fees cover the cost of event production.
