Volunteer Center

Madison College's Volunteer Center is a student-led organization that provides volunteer service learning opportunities for students while helping meet community needs.

The Volunteer Center meets at 11:30 a.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. All members of the Madison College community are welcome to attend. Check The LINK for locations.

Each fall and spring term, the Volunteer Center holds a Volunteer Fair, where representatives from community-based organizations come to share information about their work and opportunities to get involved.

The Volunteer Center also partners with UW-Madison, Edgewood College, RSVP and United Way of Dane County to coordinate Volunteer Your Time, which offers a clearinghouse of service opportunities in Dane County.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities, visit the Volunteer Center on The LINK, or contact us at volunteercenter@madisoncollege.edu or (608) 243-4593.
