Post Your Volunteer Opportunity Online
The VolunteerYourTime.org database is a great way to connect with students (and non-students) looking to volunteer. The database is managed by the United Way of Dane County, in partnership with the Morgridge Center for Public Service, Edgewood College and Madison College and features over 800 volunteer opportunities.

Promote Your Opportunities
Our Morgridge Mail digital newsletter is sent to nearly 8,000 students each week. We are happy to promote your local nonprofit volunteer opportunity, event, job or internship.
We also actively promote opportunities on social media.
Send all opportunities to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a short description and a link to more information.
Connect with Student Organizations
Reaching out to student organizations can help you recruit larger numbers of students and potentially create long-term partnerships. With over 600 student organizations active in any typical semester, chances are you can find a fairly specific cause.
Badger Volunteers connects teams of UW-Madison students with local community sites (schools, nonprofits, municipalities) to volunteer with that organization 1-4 hours every week for an entire semester. This is a great option for organizations that could benefit from having consistent volunteers over the span of 11 weeks.
