OCCE Hosts ‘Get Connected to Wake Forest’ Webinar

The Office of Civic & Community Engagement (OCCE) at Wake Forest University will host a ‘Get Connected to Wake Forest’ webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 9, from 5-6:30 p.m. EST via Zoom. 

Open to Winston-Salem nonprofit organizations and community members, ‘Get Connected’ will explore ways to get involved with Wake Forest community initiatives. Participants will learn how to connect with WFU for internships, volunteer opportunities, program or project support, clinics, resources and more. 

“Our new area of community partnerships has been working diligently over the last year so that resources and information available from Wake Forest are accessible to community partners and residents,” said Camry Wilborn, assistant director of community partnerships in the OCCE. “Our goal for this webinar is to allow people who want to get connected to WFU and utilize resources available to them to have direct contact with the faculty and staff affiliated with those initiatives.”

Webinar panelists will include faculty and staff from various offices leading community engagement, including:

  • Office of Civic & Community Engagement, which will outline possibilities for organizations to receive support through full- and part-time summer interns, as well as the High Skill Volunteer Network. In addition, virtual education programs will be highlighted for community members and local nonprofits. 
  • Program in Community-Engaged Research (Wake Forest Baptist Health), which will speak on upcoming grant opportunities available to local nonprofits and community organizations.
  • Wake Downtown, which will cover the new ‘Science of Winston-Salem’ initiative as well as its annual Maya Angelou Garden Party
  • Wake Forest Law School, which will review services provided through its Pro Bono Project, including clinics available to community members, such as Expungement Project, Teen Court, Health Care Advocacy Project and more. 
  • Wake Forest School of Divinity, which will detail its ‘Clergy in Community’ and ‘Thriving in Ministry’ programs and explain how organizations can host an intern through its The Art of Ministry curriculum.
