As an Organization:

Volunteering as a student organization or sports club is easy and fun! The benefits include:
  • Helping your local community
  • Personal improvement of individual members
  • Group building:  When organization members volunteer together they experience qualities that build a strong group bond.  These included trust, friendship, team work, spending time together, and working towards a common goal. 
  • Recognition:  There is no better way to advertise an organization than to volunteer!  It is easy, free and shows you care about being part of the local community.
  • Awards:  Student organizations that show a commitment to volunteering can be nominated for the Community Service Award at the NMU Leadership Banquet or Organization of the Year Award by the Marquette County Volunteer Community Awards.
