Admissions Staff to Conduct Summer Volunteer Workshopsby Charles Timmons • May 16, 2007
In an effort to increase volunteer activity across the country, the Admissions Office invites any regional alumni association or group of alumni to host a volunteer training workshop this summer.
Find at least 6 interested volunteers (alumni and/or Wabash parents) who would like to participate and the Admissions Office will send a staff member to conduct a training workshop in your area. We can help with the physical arrangements, but we need help from alumni in assembling the audience.
Topics for the workshops will include the following:
- Roles of a Volunteer: There are several ways to get involved and we'll show you how you can help.
- Why are Referrals So Important?: Alumni referrals are our best source for applications and we'll explain why.
- Where do you find young men who are a "good fit" for Wabash?: Potential Wabash men are all around you if you know where to look.
The ideal time to conduct these workshops is June 1 - August 3 since the Admissions staff will have more flexibility in their travel schedules.
Staff members are in the process of scheduling events in a handful of cities, but if you're interested in hosting a program in your area, don't wait for us to call you.
If you would like to schedule a workshop or have questions, please call Chip Timmons at 800-345-5385 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
