Dear Penn Community,
Penn Volunteers In Public Service posts a list of volunteer opportunities for the Penn community to become involved in. These opportunities are developed from the many requests we receive for partnerships and assistance from the local community. The Penn community continues to show its generosity by providing much needed support to members of our surrounding community. Many benefit from your willingness to give. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (215) 898-2020 to volunteer.

Do you know how to develop a Business Plan? Teach local community members in the Nonprofit Institute. Through the Nonprofit Institute, persons involved with local nonprofits and communities of faith learn how to build organizational and program capacity through the study of funding, management, technology, business practice and legal issues. Volunteer to teach our new workshop on developing business plans or design a workshop you would be interested in teaching. The Institute takes place over a two-week period and each class is approximately two hours in length.
Mentors Needed: Join the Penn WorkPlace Mentoring program. Students visit campus once a month on the third Thursday of the month from October–May and spend the day with their mentors in a variety of activities. Your commitment is for only a few hours once a month. Training will be provided.
