The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Connecticut History Day (CHD), an affiliate of National History Day, is an academic program for students in grades 6-12. Students create projects based on primary and secondary research and may choose to compete at spring regional, state and national contests.
Volunteers are needed for periodic, short-term as well as long-term opportunities in the areas of research, planning and hands-on projects. Many opportunities will take place at Connecticut's Old State House in Hartford, however volunteers are also needed at CHD's six regional contests across the state.
