We welcome any non-profit or public agencies who serve community needs within the Bloomfield, Hartford, and West Hartford townships to team up with us.
As part of the University of Hartford’s continued commitment to our community, we are pleased to share a resource that can help you to recruit volunteers for your organization. The University of Hartford has partnered with VolunteerMatch to help engage our students, faculty, staff, and alumni in volunteer service with nonprofit organizations like yours. Once you have registered, we will feature your VolunteerMatch listings on our Center for Community Service VolunteerMatch site so that those listings are promoted to our campus community.
VolunteerMatch's basic service is free, and is available for all nonprofit and tax-exempt charitable organizations. Click here to register your organization with VolunteerMatch.
If you already have an account with VolunteerMatch, please make sure to post your volunteer opportunities so that we can feature them on our site. Please keep your listings active and current to help us meet your needs.
Need student workers? The Federal government provides work study funds to the University of Hartford to be utilized by students working in our communities surrounding the University of Hartford. The student can work up to 20 hours a week at your location and be paid through Federal Work Study grants, not from your agency's funds or budget. This will depend on the student's work-study fund allotment which will be allocated in the beginning of the year. We cannot guarantee we have enough students to fill every position, but our center will actively recruit for your agency on our campus. Requirements: Be a non-profit or public agency serving community needs within the three towns. Is your agency interested in having our student(s) work for you and not have to worry about paying them? Please email us at email@example.com.
Service learning involves linking students and the community through some kind of organized project, which meets community needs, builds on what students have learned in the classroom, and increases student understanding of what it means to be a good citizen. This program accepts volunteers up to one semester, with the possibility of continuation for one academic year. Is your agency interested in having a faculty member contact you to set up a service learning project? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
