Post Grad Volunteer Discussion


Is volunteering after graduation the right choice for you?

Find out! The Creighton Center for Service and Justice will be hosting a Tostadas Dinner Wednesday, February 12, 5:30-6:30pm in the Creighton Center for Service and Justice (Harper Center 2067). All students are welcome (seniors, sure, but also geared to younger students thinking about next steps after Creighton!)
Hear stories and ask questions of former volunteers from a variety of year-long post-graduate programs. Panelists will be able to address their own discernment process during senior year that led to post-grad volunteering, and be able to answer questions about topics including international versus domestic opportunities; taking care of finances while volunteering; the differences between programs that are and are not religiously based; and more.
This event (including tostadas) is FREE, but we’ll need an accurate count for food.
Please RSVP to Jeff Peak or 402-280-1295 by 3 pm on Tuesday, February 11th if you plan to attend.
Please spread the word!
