Join us on Thursday, February 14th from 11 AM to 1 PM in LoPo for the first official CVC Expo!
Program Leaders will have an informative poster set up around the room in LoPo, and will be available to discuss the inner workings of their program, answer any questions you have, and help you get started with volunteering!
The CVC has 20 programs now, with opportunities ranging from walking dogs at the Animal Shelter, to mentoring, to cooking and serving meals at the Homeless Shelter, to tutoring, to being a part of Spring Break Volunteer Trips, and so much more!
This is an awesome opportunity to give back to your community and to get involved in something truly meaningful, so we hope to see you all there!
Check out photos from the Blue Team’s Community service project this past weekend and read about their experiences volunteering with the Special Olympics at Sugarloaf Ski Resort.
Assistant Coach Steve Opgnorth provided the CVC with the following photos and descriptions from this event.

In celebration of Volunteer Appreciation Week, we have asked our Colby Volunteer Center Program Leaders to write This I Believe statements about their volunteer programs.
We want to share these with the Colby community as a way to raise awareness about existing Colby-Waterville volunteer partnerships and to express our appreciation of the work the CVC Program Leaders do.
From Monday to Thursday in the Diamond Atrium, these statements will be part of a volunteer appreciation display. In addition, throughout the week, we will be posting them in the Civil Discourse. We have included all of the posters in the gallery below.
Today, seven Colby students, including five players from Colby’s Football Team, volunteered at the Waterville Area Warming Center. They met at the Center at 9:00 this morning and headed to Clinton to its storage unit to move equipment back into the Center. We really appreciate all those who volunteered this morning to help get the Center ready for operation this winter.

Check out the Colby Echo‘s last issue, which featured the CVC’s Good Deed of the Week initiative.
This semester has been awesome for MMHS. The new shelter was finally complete, so all guests and volunteers moved to a beautiful, spacious new location. Now, there is much more room for classes, interaction and performance. Weekly, Colby students have been cooking and sharing meals with the guests as well as offering a Friday baking class which has been growing weekly! Colby students also put on a Halloween party for the children at the shelter and look forward to more fun events with the participation of teams and clubs next semester.
As part of the Good Deed of the Week initiative, last week, three volunteers went to Goodwill Hinckley to help out with the Festival of the Tree Fluffers.
Here are a few pictures of them volunteering:
