Making Connections

You can make connections and promote your service opportunities, whether Service Learning or Internship positions for course credit (depending on faculty approval), or your regular volunteer positions (not for course credit), with Humboldt students and faculty in a number of ways...

DEVELOP Promotional Materials:

  • Position Descriptions help recruit students, promote your opportunities, facilitate screening, and outline expectations.
  • Create an eye-catching flier with basic service positions and contact information, to be distributed on campus.
  • Create an email announcement providing information on your service or project needs and attach Position Descriptions or flier.
  • Integrate information on your website about your service opportunities.
