Students hoping to reach out and address issues in the South Bend and surrounding areas will have the opportunity Wednesday, when the Center for Social Concerns (CSC) will host its annual Social Concerns Fair.

The fair will provide students a chance for direct interface with local volunteer groups, said Annie Cahill Kelly, director of community partnerships and service learning at the CSC.

“This will provide students the opportunity to meet directly with local community organizations and student clubs that have a focus in the South Bend Community,” Kelly said.

There will be 30 local nonprofit organizations represented at the fair including the Center for the Homeless, Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana and the Robinson Community Learning Center. Eleven student groups will also be present, including mentorship program Teamwork for Tomorrow, American Red Cross Club of Notre Dame and Circle K.
