UW-Madison will be hosting its annual Spring Public Service Fair on Jan. 24 from 3 to 6 p.m. in Varsity Hall at Union South. Students from across campus are encouraged to attend and learn how to connect to community organizations.
The Public Service Fair helps students explore and find volunteer opportunities, internships, and jobs, with over 60 local and national nonprofit organizations. Students will have a chance to meet with passionate and eager representatives face-to-face, chance to connect interpersonally, and explore ways to get involved.
In addition to the fair, there will be a special concurrent presentation on “Teaching Abroad” at 3:30 p.m. and following it, there will be another presentation on “Starting out in Nonprofits Alumni Panel” from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Organizations attending the Public Service Fair include: Agrace, City Year, United Way of Dane County, and Middleton Outreach Ministry. Representatives from state government agencies will also be present. A full list of the organizations attending can be view here.
The Public Service Fair is sponsored by the Morgridge Center for Public Service, which promotes civic engagement and building collaborative partnerships through public service, and SuccessWorks at the College of Letters & Science which supports students in exploring interests and connecting with others who share your passions and preparing for success after graduation.
