[373] Students can boost community involvement at April 3 nonprofit summit, volunteer fair

The event is free to students and open to all majors and interest areas.

The Volunteer/Internship Fair held from 2:30 to 4:30 the Union Ballroom will provide opportunities for MTSU students and staff to connect with over 34 nonprofit organizations about volunteer and/or internship opportunities.

This year's summit features the following session topics:
      9:40 a.m. — Students and alumni who followed their passions to better the world through the creation of their own nonprofit and social innovative entities; 
      11:05 a.m. — Nonprofit leaders who share the important role advocacy plans in having real impact on complex social issues; and 
      1 p.m. — Open to public. Learn from the local Murfreesboro Loves community action group on how to collaborate and shape the narrative told about your work (or your town) rather than having that narrative dictated by others. This last panel will share lessons learned from the successful collaboration and proactively shaping the narrative in response to white supremacists organizing a well-publicized march in Murfreesboro in fall 2017.

Organizers said the session times mirror class times so students can come and go as their schedules allow.
