About the program:

The Kelly ECC is pleased to provide support to students who face financial challenges through the Undocumented Student Program’s Dream Lending Library Program. This Program is designed to assist HB 1079 students in obtaining required textbooks that otherwise would be cost prohibitive. We will give priority to students with the highest unmet financial need.

We need your help, we would like to grow our Lending Library and we are seeking the support of our community of UW faculty, staff and alumni. If you would like to participate by donating a book or two, please click on the below link to see the list of books students are in need for this Spring Quarter.

                        For more information about the Husky Dream Lending Library Program, please contact Maggie Fonseca at mikese@uw.edu.

ETCH (Education Transforming Community Health) is recruiting new volunteers!  We are an interdisciplinary student project associated SHIFA, a non-profit organization based out of UWSOM.

We offer weekly health education sessions to homeless adults in downtown Seattle.  Through our community partnerships, we strive to create health education curriculum that bridges evidence-based practice and the voices of the many homeless communities in Seattle.  We aim to provide knowledge, skills, and tools to improve the quality of life of our participants.

Weekly sessions offer volunteers a great opportunity to connect with members of homeless communities while expanding your knowledge of preventative care, health systems, and social justice.

Commitment is flexible – we ask that volunteers participate in at least one session per month for at least 6 months - though if you’re interested in being more involved we also have many more opportunities for volunteering, advocacy, and leadership.  

This is an excellent opportunity to get involved, regardless of experience. If you are interested in joining, email etchseattle@gmail.com for more information!

Hope to see you soon!

Hall Health is seeking volunteers to assist with staffing the Wellness Resource Center at Hall Health Center, and to assist with providing coverage in this health education unit.

This volunteer activity would be of particular interest to students with an interest in medicine, nursing, psychology, sociology, social work, but is certainly not limited to those disciplines.

Below is a link that describes the volunteer position, and connects to an application form that students can fill out and return to me:

Winter is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about the 2014 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service!  MLK, Jr. Day of Service is on January 20th, 2014, and the University of Washington Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center is partnering with the United Way of King County to coordinate a county-wide event honoring the life and legacy of Dr. King.  Each year, this event engages over a thousand volunteers in service projects from all over the Greater King County region.

We are currently recruiting for Project Leaders!  Project leaders select a specific service site, and are responsible for recruiting volunteers to participate in their project.  They will sign volunteers up with United Way, and help with facilitation at Kickoff and their service site during the Day of Service.  Project Leader Registration Opens November 12th!

What does it mean to be a Project Leader? Tasks include:

• Recruit volunteers to join your MLK Day project • Communicate with your host organization • Communicate with volunteers who sign up for your project • Use the United Way online registration system to sign upand register group members • Help frame why this event & your specific service project are important for the volunteers • Coordinate t-shirt pick for your group members

If you are unable to fill your project with people you know, there will be an opportunity to open your project up to individual volunteers in early January!

You can also read our Volunteer Project Leader Resource Manual by visiting http://www.washington.edu/carlson/register-for-an-mlk-day-service-project/.

We will be holding two Project Leader Info Sessions.  These sessions are not mandatory, but are a great opportunity to learn more about signing up for a project and recruiting volunteers, as well as using United Way of King County’s interface.

You may attend one of the following Project Leader Info Sessions:

Thursday, November 7, 4-5pm in MGH 173R

Tuesday, November 13, 12-1pm in MGH 171E

If you are interested in participating in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, but don’t want to be a Project Leader, registration for individuals will open on January 3.
