Current Volunteer Opportunities

There are currently no volunteer opportunities available. Check back often though, as there will be plenty to do when spring semester starts! Past volunteer opportunities have included sifting compost produced from campus food waste, working in the UM Garden, sorting recycling from gameday, educating tailgaters on how to recycle in the Grove and Circle, weighing food waste in dining halls, installing the 2015 Complete Streets Pop Up on University Avenue and more. Volunteer opportunities are open to UM students, faculty, staff and community members. Check out photos from past volunteer events below!
