We welcome any non-profit or public agencies who serve community needs within the Bloomfield, Hartford, and West Hartford townships to team up with us.
As part of the University of Hartford’s continued commitment to our community, we are pleased to share that we actively work to create partnerships with non-profit and public agencies in the Bloomfield, Hartford, and West Hartford townships. As a resource to connecting to service opportunities please ultilize the listing of our current Community Volunteer Partners or stop in the office where we can connect you to a volunteer opportunity.
Need student workers? The Federal government provides work study funds to the University of Hartford to be utilized by students working in our communities surrounding the University of Hartford. The student can work up to 20 hours a week at your location and be paid through Federal Work Study grants, not from your agency's funds or budget. This will depend on the student's work-study fund allotment which will be allocated in the beginning of the year. We cannot guarantee we have enough students to fill every position, but our center will actively recruit for your agency on our campus. Requirements: Be a non-profit or public agency serving community needs within the three towns. Is your agency interested in having our student(s) work for you and not have to worry about paying them? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Service learning involves linking students and the community through some kind of organized project, which meets community needs, builds on what students have learned in the classroom, and increases student understanding of what it means to be a good citizen. This program accepts volunteers up to one semester, with the possibility of continuation for one academic year. Is your agency interested in having a faculty member contact you to set up a service learning project? Please email us at email@example.com.
