Moraine Park Technical College is hosting a free Community Connections Resource Fair for students and community members. The fair, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., takes place at the West Bend campus on Tuesday, Sept. 10, the Fond du Lac campus on Wednesday, Sept. 11; and the Beaver Dam campus on Thursday, Sept. 12.

The fair will bring representatives from local not-for-profits to educate students and community members about assistance programs and volunteer opportunities available through the organizations. Housing, food, medical, financial, family care and wellness are just a few of the areas these opportunities will be available in.  

Moraine Park recently implemented the service learning initiative, which allows students to serve their community and gain hands-on training through their coursework.

Rachel Weber, disability resource specialist at Moraine Park, said the fair is a great way for students to get involved and give back.

“Through this fair we hope to empower students and community members by providing education about the resources available to them for either personal access or participation in serving those in need,” Weber said.
