Volunteer!

Volunteering has tangible, positive effects on individuals and communities! There are many volunteer opportunities available in Dane County, including (but not limited to):

VolunteerMatch, through United Way, matches volunteers with local volunteer opportunities in various fields (such as advocacy, animal care, arts, working with children/seniors, etc). Includes virtual, covid-safe volunteer opportunities.

Dane County TimeBank is a collective of 2,500 individuals and organizations who can volunteer to provide and receive, hour-for-hour, services or skills within their community, such as rides to medical appointments, accounting, and house painting (there were 905 volunteer hours logged in 2020). They also offer Restorative Justice services, including a volunteer-staffed hotline for community members to call.

Rooted WI (a collaboration between Community Groundworks and Center for Resilient Cities) connects city residents to green space. Volunteers can maintain community gardens, assist with community dinners, educational seminars, and children’s programming, and participate in training programs related to urban agriculture.

Wisconsin State Park provide a list of available volunteer opportunities at one of our many beautiful state parks. This can be anything from trail maintenance to campground hosts! 

Why is this sustainable?

Organizations committed to sustainability and community service often have limited resources, and can be helped immensely in their efforts both through monetary and time donations. Volunteering also strengthens community bonds and cultivates civic engagement.
