FOCUS Kalamazoo is a Registered Student Organization that connects individuals and groups to volunteer with different non-profit organizations in the Kalamazoo area. Any individual may volunteer for any reason.
The volunteer opportunities offered this semester include:
- Rickman House: March 26, 3 to 5 p.m.
- Ministry with Community: April 1, 12:45 to 2:45 p.m.
There will also be an opportunity to be involved in a special event: Project Impact on April 8. Project Impact 2017 will be a day filled with giving back to the Kalamazoo and Portage Communities! Multiple volunteer events and times will be available. Apply here.
To get involved, visit the FOCUS Kalamazoo website, click the “Get Involved” tab, and click “Apply” under the “Individual Volunteering,” heading. Applying to the Individual Volunteer Program does not commit you to volunteering at any of the events this semester. You will receive a link giving you the option to sign up for as many or as few events as you wish.
