Update and help information
Athens Student Action (ASA) is an initiative to increase volunteerism in the Athens area among Ohio University and Hocking College students.
Athens Student Action is a portal though which Ohio University and Hocking College students can connect with volunteer opportunities in the area. Students can come to ASA and find volunteer opportunities with each of the community organizations featured on the site. Athens Student Action will also endeavor to educate Ohio University and Hocking College students about the community in which they now live. Video and audio interviews with community members, volunteers, and community organizations will help students learn about community issues and what they can do to help.
If you join ASA, your organization will have a
profile page with your logo or banner, a profile, your contact
information, a link to your volunteer page, and links to your social
media outlets. Students will be able to search for your organization by
service keyword, location or alphabetically by name. Once a student
finds you, they can access your site's volunteer page or contact your
organization by e-mail or phone.
Student Action was created to respond to a concern, felt by many
organizations in this area, that Ohio University students are not as
engaged in volunteerism in the Athens area as they could and should be.
We want to reach out to Ohio University and Hocking College
students and make it easier for them to find meaningful volunteer
opportunities. We also want to highlight the importance of volunteerism
in a well-rounded education.
