Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 16, 2011
The My Texas Helps website is nearing its early 2012 launch date, and is now inviting non-profit organizations and businesses to sign up to join the site, in order to connect with college students and faculty across the state about their volunteer and job opportunities.
The website is the latest project from Texas Campus Compact, the non-profit organization that oversees and coordinates service learning for higher education institutions across Texas.
“This is a great opportunity for businesses and non-profits to join a network featuring some of our best college students,” said Patricia Potyka, executive director of Texas Campus Compact. “Students involved with service learning are ideal candidates for volunteer positions and jobs, and My Texas Helps will facilitate connection with these students and their faculty advisors.”
My Texas Helps aims to build upon its existing network of 72 statewide campuses by involving non-profits and businesses in what Potyka terms as a revolutionary new way for these four groups to connect. Upon joining, non-profit organizations and businesses will be able to post volunteer and job opportunities, increase visibility, and showcase engagement with the community.
Those interested in joining should email join(at)texascampuscompact(dot)org, and site administrators will send registration and log-in instructions when the site is live. For more information, visit http://www.mytexashelps.org to see a video highlight site features, as well as descriptions of how the site will specifically serve each of its four communities.
