CEDAR FALLS, Iowa ï¾– The University of Northern Iowa's annual volunteer fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 7, in the Old Central Ballroom in Maucker Union.















The event, offering students service opportunities within the Cedar Valley, is hosted by Volunteer UNI of UNI's Academic Advising & Career Services. More than 70 non-profit organizations are expected to attend the fair, an event that draws nearly 500 students each year.















Non-profit organizations will provide a wide range of volunteer opportunities for students and student organizations interested in social services, educational and youth services, health promotion, arts and culture, legal and judicial services, environmental and animal services, marketing and public relations services and office services.















College students continue to be more civically engaged. The time they spent volunteering last year was worth $4.45 billion to the communities they served, according to a survey report released by Campus Compact, a nonprofit group that advocates student involvement in public service.
