Want to Make a Difference in 2015? Volunteer!
You may be able to use your volunteering time for paid release time! More guidelines are available by clicking here. Staff members must consult with and receive approval to use the designated time so as not to conflict with departmental activities and services. For more information about this benefit, please contact Ron Musselwhite, director, Employee and Labor Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may wish to reach out to Daniel Botting, associate director for Pace University’s Center for Community Action and Research for volunteer opportunities.
