Volunteering at DTCC: Spare Time Well Spent

Pick any number of studies on the benefits of volunteering and you’ll often find that it helps out the volunteer as well as the community. Meeting new friends, networking with professionals, and in some cases, getting some fresh air and exercise, are all potential benefits that go along with providing some much-needed help for a good cause. You don’t have to go far to find ways to help out, since Durham Tech coordinates two volunteer opportunities every month and also has an ongoing commitment with Project Linus and R.N. Harris Elementary School.

Some locations are nearby or on campus. One of the most popular volunteer opportunities is at the Briggs Avenue Community Garden, where Fridays are DTCC work days. Every Tuesday afternoon from 4 -5 PM, students gather in Phillips 310A to process, sort, and stock donations for the Campus Harvest Food Pantry.

To have a look at where your heart and hands are needed, visit DTCC’s Volunteer Opportunities page, and email volunteer@durhamtech.edu if you have any questions.
