UPDATE 2: the time and location of the first info session has changed.
Thanks for your interest in joining the Suitcase Clinic! Each semester we recruit new volunteers to serve the underserved and promote social justice in our community. If you would like to learn more about joining the Suitcase Clinic, please attend one of our Info Sessions on Tuesday, January 24 from 5-6pm in B100 Blum and Thursday, January 26 from 5-6pm in 182 Dwinelle. You can also email us at “class [AT] suitcaseclinic.org”.
New volunteers take a 2-unit service learning course (HMS 98/198) that discusses the problem of homelessness and how students can become effective caseworkers for homeless clients. Our Spring 2012 class will be held Thursdays from 5-7pm in 182 Dwinelle. Class begins on February 2.
