The YMCA is one of the organizations that will be at the Connect Tampa for a Difference Nonprofit Volunteer Fair


Emerge Tampa Bay is holding its inaugural Connect Tampa for a Difference Nonprofit Volunteer Fair showcasing more than 40 nonprofits on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the USF Marshall Student Center Ballroom, 4103 Cedar Circle, Tampa. The fair is free to attend.

Emerge Tampa Bay has partnered with the USF Student Affairs Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement to hold the fair and give the community a chance to learn about local nonprofits and service organizations.

Some of the organizations participating in the fair include Tampa Metro YMCA, Alpha House, Computer Mentors Group, Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, Gulf Coast Jewish Family & Community Services, Florida Blood Services and USF Habitat for Humanity.

The group previously held an event that showcased about five nonprofits, with a question-and-answer panel about how people could get involved. It decided to hold the fair this year to help community members who want to get involved with a volunteer organization but aren't aware of what organizations exist.

For more information on organizations that will be at the fair, visit the group's "upcoming events" page at or contact Emerge Tampa Bay coordinator Ashley Ehrman at (813) 276-9448.
