Volunteer Services and Community Partners
Volunteer Services is here to help connect the students and faculty of Western Illinois University to the agencies and programs throughout the community of Macomb. Volunteer Services partners with Volunteer NOW: Macomb Area Volunteer Center. Volunteer NOW has just launched a new website so please register your agency or project. You can list all of your volunteer opportunities so WIU students and others in the Macomb area can volunteer for you! The website is available for all Western students to search and locate volunteer opportunities to fit their needs. If you would like assistance learning how to utilize the Volunteer NOW website, please contact us at 309-298-3232.
Another way Volunteer Services is trying to connect the Western community to the Macomb community is through a practice called Service-Learning. Service-Learning links students with the community through service and reflection to enhance the classroom experience. Service-Learning is quickly becoming a common practice across the nation as both an effective, practical learning tool that both educates and encourages involvement. To learn more about Service-Learning, please visit the Service-Learning Page.
