About Badger Volunteers

Badger Volunteers is a semester-long program that pairs teams of students with community organizations (schools, nonprofits, municipalities) to volunteer 1-4 hours each week at the same organization. The program is designed to foster meaningful and consistent connections between community partners and students over the course of an entire semester. Badger Volunteers provides logistical support, transportation, training and education sessions for student volunteers in the program.

Volunteer opportunities fall into three categories: Education, Sustainability and Public Health. However, Badger Volunteers has an opportunity for any major and any interest.

Badger Volunteers participate in orientation the third week of the semester and begin volunteering the fourth week. Volunteering ends the second-to-last week of the semester.

Summer 2015 registration is now closed. Fall 2015 registration will take place online, September 4-10.
