Community partners play a critical role in helping Bradley University students become engaged citizens of Peoria and the surrounding communities. Whether it is conducting orientations and training sessions, involving students in ongoing projects, or helping students see the impact they are having on the community through direct service, community partners are co-educators for each student with whom they interact. Attending the Volunteer Recruitment Fair at the beginning of the fall semester is a great opportunity for community partners to begin developing relationships with their student volunteers.
The LJB Center offers many different opportunities to connect your agency with Bradley student volunteers.
