Have some free time this summer? Want to make an impact in your community? Why not volunteer and help those in need? There are so many ways to get involved in the community from working with animals, the environment, veterans, housing, education, and the list goes on. Each month we will highlight one organization where you can volunteer your time and talent.
Before we dig deeper into specific organizations, we wanted to provide a few resources available to you to find out how you can start volunteering. Our HR website has a Volunteer Opportunities page with some great links for these resources. To get to that page, go to uwgb.edu/hr/employees/volunteer. Each month we will have a Featured Volunteer Opportunity where you can learn more about a specific organization. If you are passionate about a cause but don’t know what specific organization shares that passion, you can visit The Volunteer Center of Brown County’s website. There you can select a cause and it will show you some of the organizations that would love the help of volunteers. If you prefer to share your talents outside of Brown County there are volunteer resources available for other area communities as well. If you just want to volunteer and are not sure exactly where to start, you can try volunteermatch.org. This website will also help you find places that need volunteers but also will show you who has activities going on in the coming days if you want to try something different every time or support an organization’s activity.
If you have an organization you’d like to have featured or have a pictures of yourself donating your time to an organization, please e-mail Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org with that information. As part of UWGB’s innitiative of Transformation we can use the time we volunteer to help change lives of others in our community for the better.
