    • What is a Post-Graduate Volunteer Fair?
      A Post-Graduate Volunteer Fair is similar to a career fair. The fair displays a wide variety of opportunities open to students who would like to explore volunteering with nonprofit service organizations. It is open to all students interested in pursuing local, domestic or international service after they graduate. Representatives from the agencies and organizations gather at this fair on campus to meet and talk with students. It is a networking event to become familiar with the particular opportunities, work and experiences the attending organizations offer.

    • What should I expect at the Volunteer Fair?
      This Post-Graduate Volunteer Fair is a relaxed atmosphere. Representatives are looking to get to know people and students. For the volunteer, the purpose of the fair is to introduce a wide variety of volunteer opportunities in the hope of finding an organization or agency that matches the volunteer's passion and vision of making a difference in the local and worldwide community. The purpose of the fair for the organization is to connect with new volunteers.
    • Should I prepare anything ahead of time?
      Though it might be helpful to come prepared with resume in hand, it is certainly not required or expected. This is an excellent opportunity to meet, talk and build relationship between students and organizations. Business casual to casual is appropriate attire; look presentable.
    • History of Ohio Post-Graduate Volunteer Fairs
      The Post-Graduate Volunteer Fair was initiated by Peace and Justice Programs in the Fall of 2004 in collaboration with the University of Dayton and the fair played host to organizations and agencies during the day that year in Gallagher Student Center. The two consecutive years following it grew in number of participants, agencies/organizations and students. It also was moved to the Cintas/Schiff Family Conference Center Duff Banquet Room and held in the evening. In 2005 John Carroll in Cleveland joined Xavier and Dayton to form the volunteer fair "Ohio Loop." Fall 2009 marked the addition of Ohio Dominican University to the "Ohio loop" of volunteer fairs. We are happy to be a host for such great organizations at our annual NonProfit Career and Volunteer Fair!
