Public Service Fair

Public Service Fair

The Public Service Fair, hosted in the fall and in the spring, is an opportunity for local area nonprofits engaged in social impact and public service work to connect with UW–Madison students. Organizations are encouraged to share volunteer, internship and service year opportunities as ways for students to get involved.
