Volunteer and Civic Engagement FairKellogg COmmunity College

Each semester KCC puts this fair on for students and community members. The next fair will take place in September 2021 in collaboration with Bruin Blast! Registration will open in August.

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.

This year we are going to combine our fair with Bruin Blast (fall) and Bruin Boost (spring) to increase participation by all. It will be a neat celebration.

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 Coplin at and we will make sure to add you to our list.

Bruins Give Back

Do you have a 3 hours project that you could use volunteers? Bruins Give Back (BGB) takes place three times each semester and is available for all members of the KCC community to participate. The Bruins Give Back events occur at locations around Battle Creek. Please email Kate Coplin at if you have a project that could use students, staff and faculty on one of our BGB service days.

During the 2021-2022 school year Bruins Give Back events will look different. We will not have BGB for the fall, but hope to offer them in the spring. This will help to ensure safety for all involved. We encourage everyone to stay connected to the community and serve in any capacity that you can during this year. It will be great to be back next spring 2022.
