HCT-Fujairah Colleges students have been introduced to the world of volunteering as the colleges hosted its inaugural Volunteer Fair featuring eight organizations.
Dr Ali Al Mansoori, Deputy Vice Chancellor of Campus Operations and Acting Fujairah Colleges Director, opened the fair with a fascinating and motivating speech to the students who were keen to learn about the organizations’ activities. In addition, the students were able to discuss volunteering opportunities with the organizations.
The fair was also an ideal opportunity for the students to learn more about the HCT’s policy and initiatives relating to its volunteering programme.
The day started with the playing of the UAE national anthem, followed by video created by Applied Media students with respect to volunteering and their own experiences. This included a discussion session where students talked about the importance of volunteering, the skills gained, as well useful advice for other students.
During the event the colleges’ Volunteer Officers met with representatives from the eight organizations in order to develop collaborations on volunteering opportunities, logistics and initiatives.
