UW-Marinette students make great volunteers! They are enthusiastic and willing to work to make the world a better place. As volunteers, students are able to learn or enhance skills that will help them succeed in future careers as well as provide a service to your organization. Volunteering gives students the ability to pursue multiple interests, practice networking skills and gain valuable work experience.
The volunteer interest form was developed as a way to alert students to new and ongoing volunteer opportunities in the community. The volunteer interest forms are posted on the volunteer bulletin board across from the cafeteria. Students can look over the opportunities posted and match their interests with the volunteer postings. These postings allow for the student to contact the organization seeking volunteers.
What is Service Learning?
Service Learning combines academic curriculum that students are learning in the classroom and connects that instruction with real-world experiences to meet an actual need in the community. Service Learning provides students with a hands-on learning environment to foster the further development of their abilities, interests, and career paths. By combining academics and service, the learning process transcends the classroom and encourages students and instructors to view the world through a more diverse lens.
Service Learning benefits students, faculty and the community as a whole. Students participating in Service Learning projects use knowledge they have acquired in their courses to instigate social change and work for the betterment of their community. Faculty have the opportunity to challenge their students through a new and unique learning experience while collaborating with a community partner in hopes of a mutually beneficial outcome for all. The community, in turn, receives a more engaged, compassionate, and knowledgeable group of graduates. View the top 10 reasons to participate in Service Learning.
