June 2: Michael McCullough's 6th Annual Amatuer Sculpting Contest in Ridgway- ages 7 and up
On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, the Ridgway Secondary School is hosting its second Youth Volunteer Fair to connect middle and high school students to nonprofits from around the community. This one-hour event from 12:10 to 1:10 p.m. is a great opportunity for nonprofits to share information about your nonprofit and volunteer needs.
Not only do students make enthusiastic volunteers, engaging them in your nonprofit activities can spread your message further through their families and friends. As this article, 5 Tips for Recruiting Young Volunteers, points out: "No matter what your volunteering program does, there are ways to incorporate young people into it and benefit from their energy, ideas and skills." (Click on the article title to read more.)
Volunteer and community service are often requirements for scholarships, college entrance and other goals of students. In fact, National Honor Society members are required to volunteer 10 hours per semester. However, it can be difficult or confusing for youth to know which nonprofits need volunteers and how and when to volunteer.
Meanwhile, nonprofits have a regular need for volunteers at annual events and other activities, that can be challenging to fill in small communities. Nonprofit staff is not always prepared to offer a volunteer assignment when asked spontaneously by a young person. But, with planning and the right opportunity, nonprofits and youth volunteers can find ways to benefit each other with great experiences that help the whole community.
As a service to local students and nonprofits, the Ridgway Secondary School will host a youth volunteer fair from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 3 in the cafeteria at 1200 Green Street, Ridgway.
The Ridgway Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the first annual Ridgway Chamber Open! This year’s event will take place on Saturday, September 9th at the Divide Ranch & Club.
