Looking for an opportunity

Dear Students,

On Wednesday, February 10th the Service-Learning Fair will be held from noon to 2:00 pm in Akoakoa 101- 105.

More than 30 non-profit community organizations will be present to talk to WCC students about volunteering in our community.  Volunteering at a community organization helps students explore careers, improve job skills, gain confidence and become a more engaged global citizen.

Previous student testimonials:

-It was very fun helping build the Hale in Waimanalo.  I made new friends there and had a sense of community while being there.
-I can't wait to do more and get more students involved at Ke Ola Hale.
-Working at the Hawaiian Humane Society is a great experience and everyone should do it.  It helps with your emotions, especially when you're sad - the animal is always there to help you.
-Friends of Kaneohe Library was a great place to work. I made many friends.
-I smile so much more these days after volunteering at New Hope Windward.
-I had lots of fun at the Hula Preservation Society.

SOME COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS WHO WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE:
Aloha Pregnancy Center
Hanauma Bay Education
Keiki O Ka Aina
Islands Hospice
Hui O Koolaupoko
HUGS
Ronald McDonald House
Liveable Hawaii Kai Hui
Kailua Elementary

Looking forward to seeing you at the Service-Learning Fair,

Sharon MacQuoid, Coordinator
Jamie and Donovan, Student Assistants

ATTENTION!!! Why not get FREE MONEY

Aloha Everyone!

Before the semester gets into full swing, you should be sure to complete your UH System Scholarship, Hawaii Community Foundation, and Kamehameha scholarships. It'll take about 3 - 5 hours to complete each one.

Lastly, for those of you who would like some additional help with your applications, Hylie and other Hulili staff will be holding application sessions to help you---see attached flyer for dates and times.


ps.
Did you finish your FAFSA application? If not, you need to do that TODAY!

ppss.

You do realize that if you're Native Hawaiian, you can get $14,000 - $17,000 a year of FREE money for school and living expenses. If you're not Native Hawaiian, you could get almost $7,000 just for completing your FAFSA.
