Alpha Alpha Chapter Receives Service Award

On April 20, 2017, Alpha Alpha Chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign received the Commitment to Service Award at the University's annual Volunteer Service Recognition Ceremony. This is a special presentation hosted by the Office of Volunteer Programs (OVP) to recognize students, staff, registered student organizations and other student groups for their contributions on campus, to the local community, and their service throughout the country and around the world. 
According the the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's website, the OVP is a division of Student Affairs at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, opened in the Fall of 1989 to promote community service and volunteer activity. One of its main functions has been to provide a clearinghouse where volunteer opportunities can be matched with willing volunteers. The OVP continually strives to increase students' awareness of the needs of the Champaign-Urbana community. University students compose the volunteer base who offer their time to help not-for-profit organizations with service projects. Conveniently located at 288 Illini Union, the Office of Volunteer Programs also does the following: provides informational resources on volunteerism; advises student service organizations; connect student groups and agencies; connects the C-U community and the University; offer consulting to strengthen community service-related programs; educates students about community service via workshops; and conducts outreach with community agencies and student groups.
