A bit of history…
In 1999, the Iowa State University Psych Club began a tradition of bringing together agencies of the Ames community in the annual Social Services Volunteer Fair. The event was intended to provide students volunteer and internship opportunities. Within a few years, the Psych Club was joined by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Career Services, the 10,000 Hours Show, and the College of Human Sciences as co-sponsors. In 2012, the decision was made to return this event to the student organizations of Psych Club and CyServe Council (formerly 10,000 Hours Show) as co-sponsors.
The Psych Club is comprised of all active Psych majors and minors at Iowa State University. This student run club promotes interation among Psych majors and faculty, opportunities for hands-on leadership, community service projects, and involvement in VEISHEA village.
The purpose of CyServe Council is to engage Iowa State University students and other local young people in the Story County area through volunteer service at local nonprofits and also to host a celebration event (example: concert, comedian, hypnotist, bingo, etc.) for these volunteers to encourage and recognize their service. Through these efforts, CyServe Council encourages young people to meet immediate community needs through volunteering and community service and helps develop the next generation of active community leaders. CyServe Council works with the United Way of Story County, the Volunteer Center of Story County, the Iowa Commission on Volunteer Service, and Iowa State University.
