We are excited to announce that Project Reach Out (PRO) will be working on a collaboration with Be The Change on October 1, 2011!
Project Reach Out is a large-scale, biannual volunteer event sponsored by the UT Student Volunteer Board. Our mission is to unite the UT student population for one day of service to help the needs of the Austin community. Previous PRO events have counted over 500 volunteers serving a variety of non-profit agencies throughout Austin, all in a single day.
Essentially Be The Change works in the same way; however, it is only one day of service that is hosted in many states across the nation! We are excited for this collaboration and would love for you to participate in this event.
This year, there are more than 20 different nonprofit agencies in the Austin area looking for volunteers to help meet needs of the local Austin community on the day of Project Reach-Out. The full list of agencies is currently available at http://www.bethechangeaustin.org.
A how-to on how to sign yourself as an individual or as an organization can be found on the following link: http://bethechangeaustin.org/projects/
In addition, the service requires site leaders at a number of volunteer sites. Please let us know if anyone is interested in becoming a site leader for the day of service. This is on short notice and immediate response is desired. More information will be provided for those who want to become site leaders.
Please Mark your calendars – Project Reach Out will be on October 1st, 2011!
Let us know if you have any questions!
