Volunteer for Charleston YOUth Count

What: An estimated one third of College of Charleston students struggle with not having enough food to eat or a secure place to sleep at night. The scope of the problem for the rest of Charleston is unclear, but through Charleston YOUth Count, a Riley Center initiative, we are gathering data to find out rates of food and housing insecurity and work to provide individuals in our community much needed resources and support. This research project is the first of its kind in the Charleston area, and we are looking for volunteers (“Community Liaisons”) to conduct interviews. Looks great on a resume, free CITI certification, and you will be making a direct impact on your community!

When: For this position, you should plan to be available on EITHER February 10 OR February 18 AND for at least 3 hours/week March 11-17 and March 25-31 (exact times flexible).

To Apply: tinyurl.com/YOUthCountCHS.

Deadline: February 2, 2018
