The Millenium Scholarship and Volunteerism
"Life's most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?"
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
Did you know that all Millennium Scholars are encouraged to volunteer 20 hours a year, and that HON 200B students must volunteer between 15-20 hours in fall semester? Here are a few easy ways you can learn about new volunteer opportunities that match your interests:
- Visit NV Volunteers' Volunteer Match website nevadavolunteers.volunteermatch.org
- Volunteering Resource Binder: Created by UNR students for UNR students! Find over 50 pages filled with resources on campus and in the community.
"Volunteering shows a level of involvement in the community that transcends the ordinary.
For a student with little work history, I think solid volunteer experience is almost equivalent."
-Karen Ross, Manager of Community Relations, NV Energy
