Students Helping Achieve Rewarding Experiences
S.H.A.R.E. is a peer education group dedicated to
recruiting volunteers and spreading awareness about community service
opportunities. S.H.A.R.E. strives to aid students in extending their
education by serving in the Roanoke Valley through community service and
helping insure that their experiences are exciting, challenging, and
rewarding. The student staff coordinates the placements at a variety of
agencies and organizations within the local community including the
areas of education/youth, elderly, medical and crisis intervention. It
is a great way to get to know new people on campus and in the community.
Come S.H.A.R.E. with us!
All entering students are encouraged to participate in Day of
Service, a segment of orientation that provides an opportunity for new
Hollins students to volunteer for a three-hour service experience in the
Roanoke Valley. Projects may range from landscaping to working with
children to spending time with the elderly. Opportunities for
volunteering in the Roanoke Valley through S.H.A.R.E. include Northwest
Child Development Center, West End Center for Youth, Total Action
Against Poverty (TAP), and Northwest Neighborhood Environmental
Organization (NNEO), to name a few.
