As student leaders, we provide our student body with a variety of ways to get involved and give back to the community. One of the opportunities that we provide is volunteering with our student-led #Jags4Change group throughout the semester.
Why should you get involved with #Jags4Change volunteering?
Volunteering is essential because it provides help to worthwhile causes, people in need, and the wider community. Our community relies on the generosity of volunteers to be able to give back to people in need who may not be able to afford resources otherwise.
