Marquette Volunteer Corps


About

Description

Marquette Volunteer Corps is a semester-long opportunity for Marquette students to volunteer in a meaningful way, building relationships with community members as well as their peers.


MVC volunteers join a team of 5-7 members that volunteer together every week for a semester. Each team is situated around an issue area, such as education, homelessness, literacy, etc. You'll spend the semester serving with your team and learning more about the issue, Milwaukee, and yourself.

Why Join Marquette Volunteer Corps?

  • Make a real difference in the Milwaukee community
  • Learn about an issue that you care about
  • Develop relationships with your teammates
  • Reflect on your experience with an experienced Team Leader
  • Big group reflection where you can learn about multiple social justice issues
  • We coordinate transportation

Expectations for Volunteers

Volunteers are expected to commit to volunteering every week for an entire semester, so plan ahead for your other responsibilities. We understand that schedules get busy, so one absence per semester can be discussed with your Team Leader. We also have monthly reflection which we ask volunteers to attend to reflect on service experience and how we can creat more equitable and inclusive community.

 *As part of the application process you may be asked to complete a background check. For any questions on this check or this process, please contact us.
