Spring Public Service Fair: Connect with Local and National Nonprofit Organizations

Public Service Fair

Start off the new year with UW-Madison’s Spring Public Service Fair and explore short- and long-term volunteer opportunities, internships and jobs.

On Jan. 30 from 3 to 6 p.m. in Varsity Hall at Union South, students are encouraged to attend and learn how to connect to community organizations. Students will have the opportunity to meet with over 60 local and national nonprofit organizations, connect interpersonally and explore ways to get involved.

In addition to the fair, from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. a panel of law and policy professionals in fields such as health, environment and immigration will discuss how they made the choice between getting a law or public policy degree.

The International Internship Program will be holding a special concurrent workshop: “Teaching English Abroad Info Session” from 5:15 to 6 p.m.
