Abstract

At Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (AUI), students are required to do community service, but AUI has no centralized way for students to find service projects in the community that stimulate their interests. The goal of this project is to improve the nature of volunteering at the university by building relationships between AUI and non-governmental organizations using a volunteer-match website as a tool. These relationships serve to expand the volunteer program at AUI and broaden the impact of volunteer work on the community. Using information from student focus groups and NGO interviews, we established a plan of implementation for this new volunteer-match service as well as recommendations to our sponsor.
