Volunteer recruitment fairs

Throughout the academic year, many colleges and universities will organise recruitment fairs for their students. While some fairs may have just one section for voluntary organisations to recruit, others will have fairs specifically for this purpose.

Volunteer recruitment fairs will usually be organised by the careers office of the college or university. The good thing about recruiting at one of these fairs is that the people who will attend will be those already willing to give up some of their time to help an organisation – they will usually be looking for the voluntary organisation that is right for them. So use this opportunity to recruit by selling scouting as an adventure through which skills and experience can be gained!
