Through partnerships with other nonprofits and outside organizations, this program addresses a different cause and organization with each visit to expose Bruin volunteers to a sampling platter of volunteer opportunities and to pique volunteers’ interest in programs they could work with on an ongoing basis.
Looking for ways to participate with One Bus, One Cause? Here are a few ideas:
