Opportunities for College Greeks to Volunteer at Virginia State Parks
One of the most rewarding benefits of being involved with fraternities and sororities in the college Greek community is to help others and make a difference in the world. Although our organizations are actively involved in our national philanthropy, it is great to volunteer locally. Plus volunteering looks great on a new graduate's resume!
