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!

In other exciting news, the application process for Project Reach Out is currently open!

To apply for a PRO co-chair position, simply fill out the application (provided below) and submit it (with your current resume) to the application box at the front desk of the Student Organization Center (SSB, 4th floor). Applications are due by 5 PM on APRIL 22, 2011. You can also submit your application electronically to svbprojectreachout@gmail.com (due at the same time). After you have applied, we will then contact you for a short, informal interview, which will take place the week of the 18th.

Becoming a PRO Co-chair is a great way to serve the community as well as the campus. It’s also a great way to get involved with Student Volunteer Board and get to know other students.

There are 4 co-chair positions available, so we encourage all of you to apply. As your PRO Co-chairs this year, we have really come to love what we do and what Project Reach Out stands for. The Austin community is always in need of a helping hand, but often students do not have the time to volunteer on a regular basis. Project Reach Out offers an opportunity for students to go out and volunteer for a day and feel the fulfillment of being a part of something bigger than themselves. PRO recruits and organizes volunteers for nonprofits that have expressed a need to complete a special project or event. As a PRO co-chair, you will facilitate this process and work to make this huge event possible!

To access the application, click here: 2011-2012 Project Reach Out Application
Thank you and, as usual, if you have any questions feel free to contact us at svbprojectreachout@gmail.com.

Love,

PRO Co-chairs
