  1. ENGAGE Community Volunteer Discussion: Sarah Teare, Community Development Director at Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley ENGAGE Community Volunteer Discussion: Sarah Teare, Community Development Director at Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley »

    May 7, 2020 - 12:00pm

    Join ENGAGE and the Office of Field Education for a virtual discussion this Thursday, May 7th, at 12 pm, featuring Sarah Teare, Community Development Director of Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley. Teare will be discussing Habitat's response to Ypsilanti community needs, how neighborhoods create supportive systems during times of crisis, and how students can join Habitat for Humanity's efforts. Attending this session will count towards field credit.

    During times of uncertainty and crisis, people come together to support one another. COVID-19 is a new test of our collective strength. The Community Engagement team and the Office of Field Education have created a webpage that includes a list of volunteer opportunities to support community members and organizations as well as additional resources. In addition, the team is hosting conversations about volunteering during the pandemic.

    “Coming together like this provides a teachable moment.  When there is a difficult or emergency situation, we can work together to share resources and come up with answers.  No one person has to figure everything out on their own. The COVID-19 virus has brought lots of uncertainty, but the School of Social Work community can do its part to uncover and respond to needs as they arise,” said Professor and Director of Community Engagement Trina Shanks.
