Bridging the gap

They say a journey of 1,000 miles starts with a single footstep.

The first step on the path to helping others begins when one finds out who needs help. This is where the UND Volunteer Bridge comes in.

According to the Volunteer Bridge website, its mission is “to provide information, opportunities and support for students interested in pursuing civic involvement through volunteerism.”

Students who sign up will receive weekly emails alerting them to volunteer opportunities.

Community organizations are able to post volunteer
opportunities to the Volunteer Bridge.

There are plenty of opportunities around Grand Forks for those who are ready to lend a helping hand. Volunteer Bridge maintains relationships with more than 70 agencies in the community.

Students are invited to take that first step by contacting the Volunteer Bridge.
