  • F&M students volunteer with an after school enrichment program called F&M S.L.A.M that uses sports as a tool to provide a safe and interactive learning environment for local Lancaster middle school students from Reynolds Middle School. Mark Werner Dourmashkin (wearing navy blue F&M t-hirt) manages the program under the F&M Works Program, which is a way for F&M students to work with local community organizations. This photo was taken on April 24th, 2013. Students begin by playing kickball and then get help with homeworking/tutoring with F&M students for an hour.

In addition to attending the F&M Community Service Fair,  the Ware Institute will promote your organizations volunteer opportunites to our campus community.  


This open-house style event invites community agencies to come to campus and exchange information with F&M students. The goal of the Ware Institute Community Service Fair is to connect the F&M community directly to opportunities at local organizations - several within walking distance of campus. 

  • Student Volunteers - Are you looking to enrich your college experience through community service? Are you passionate about a social issue? Come to the Community Engagement Fair and learn about organizations that are making a difference!
  • Student Organizations - Take advantage of this opportunity early in the semester to make some great community contacts for volunteer opportunities.
  • Faculty and Staff - Are you looking to engage your students in meaningful service and learning opportunities? Promote this event to your students!

Volunteering is My Way of Giving Back

“I volunteer because Lancaster is my home away from home. F&M has 
given me really useful tools as a student, and I wanted to use those 
tools to make the community better. I didn't want to limit myself to 
the four corners of campus during my time at F&M. I wanted to 
give back to the community that has welcomed me with open arms.” 
My experience in three words:
