UK students can learn how to get involved at the Center for Community Outreach Volunteer Fair.

The fair will be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Wednesday on the Student Center patio.

The fair is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at UK and “gives students the opportunity to meet with non-profit agencies around and out of Lexington,” said Ashley Lee, Director of Special Events at CCO.

Lee said the fairs shows students what CCO offers besides Fusion and Dance Blue.

Over 50 non-profit agencies will be at the fair including UK student organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Students Helping Honduras and Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity.

The CCO expects 300-400 students to attend, and Lee said there will be free popsicles for students who are there.
