About the Program
The Volunteer Opportunities Fair (VOF) aims to connect Huntsville and surrounding area community organizations with SHSU students. Representatives from various agencies are invited to campus each semester to provide information about their organization and ways that students can get involved. Volunteers are vital to helping these organizations fulfill their mission.
Come out and be the change you want to see!
