HOLLINS Cultural & Community Engagement

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.
