Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fair

Kellogg COmmunity College

Each semester KCC puts this fair on for students and community members. The next fair will take place in September 2016. Check back in August to register your organization.

Are you looking for ways to recruit volunteers this year?  This event is  a great opportunity for KCC students interested in service-learning  and community service. At the fair students will have the chance to learn about the work and mission of many organizations and about various needs in the Battle Creek community.

If you are a community partner that would like to be part of this event but haven’t received any emails about past Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fairs, please email Kate DeGraaf at and we will make sure to add you to our list.
