Morgridge Center Update by Katie Coon

The Morgridge Center is UW-Madison's center for public service - connecting students, faculty and academic staff with nonprofits and the community through volunteerism, service-learning and community-based research.  Check back each week for great service opportunities you can get involved in.

2010 Volunteer Fair

The Fall 2010 Volunteer Fair will be held September 23, 2010, from 11a.m. - 2p.m. in the Great Hall at Memorial Union (4th Floor). Representatives from 60 local non-profit organizations and schools will offer a wide variety of ways to serve the local community, including tutoring, mentoring, child care, advocacy, health care, environmental issues, elder care and more. Your involvement can make a difference in the community. Talk with representatives to find a volunteer opportunity that matches your interests, coursework, or career goals.  This event is free and open to all. For more information on the Fall Volunteer Fair visit our Website.

Volunteer Transportation Orientation

The Volunteer Transportation Program is a free service courtesy of the Morgridge Center intended for students who volunteer at least eight times per semester. This program is designed to support students who would like to volunteer on a regular basis but can’t because of transportation limitations.

Students must attend an orientation before they can schedule their first ride. Orientations are being held Mondays at 2:30pm and Thursdays at 11:30am now through October 25th at the Morgridge Center for Public Service.

If you would like to learn more about the Volunteer Transportation Program, please visit us on-line, email cabride@morgridge.wisc.edu, or call 608-263-2432.
