Our student body tends to be especially socially-conscious and volunteer-oriented. If your student wants to get involved on campus and do something in the spirit of our Pro Humanitate (for humanity) motto, the Volunteer Service Corps is a great place to start.
The VSC has a number of upcoming events where students can either learn more about VSC or can help plan future volunteer efforts. Below is some of the information VSC shared with the Parent Programs office about events on the horizon:
VSC Service Events Committee Information Meeting!
Thursday, September 22nd @6pm – Volunteer Office, 5th Floor Benson. Everyone is welcome! Help us plan events throughout the semester!
The application is available on our website and the deadline for applying is Monday, September 26. PREPARE is an organization that develops, plans and coordinates programs to educate the Wake Forest community about acquaintance rape and sexual assault prevention, as well as provides a PREPARE student advocate program
Deac families, you can learn more about volunteer opportunities at the Campus Life website. If your student is still looking to find his/her groove this semester and is seeking engagement with others, encourage him or her to check out the many ways to serve our campus and the larger community!
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
