Marquette Volunteer Corps

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.

Choose an issue area you care about. See our sites.

Expectations of 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 volunteers are expected to attend in order to build relationships wih other MVC volunteers and reflect on the service experience and how we can creat more equitable and inclusive community.
