Social Impact Career Fair

January 21, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm

| College 8, West Field House | Free

The Social Impact Fair is targeted toward non-profits and social services that are searching for students who would like to impact their community. Employers are looking to meet qualified UC Santa Cruz students with specific job skills and knowledge developed in a rigorous academic major, and the breadth of a well-rounded liberal arts education.

Companies scheduled to attend:

CALPIRG – Citizen Outreach Chapter
We are the Citizen Outreach office for CALPIRG in Santa Cruz! We work to educate individuals about extremely pressing issues and to win campaigns that will benefit the public. We’re looking for students to fill part-time PAID positions to help us win these campaigns and protect public interest! Right now we’re working on a campaign to protect public health and stop the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms. This is an extremely urgent and important campaign and UCSC students are the perfect types of passionate individuals we need to really make a difference!

FoodCorps
FoodCorps is a nationwide team of leaders that connects kids to real food and helps them grow up healthy. We do that by placing motivated leaders in limited-resource communities for a year of paid public service. Working under the direction of local partner organizations, we implement a three-ingredient recipe for healthy kids. Our Service Members teach kids about what healthy food is and where it comes from, build and tend school gardens, and bring high-quality local food into public school cafeterias.
