Volunteering

Volunteering at Viterbo has never been easier!  Viterbo has partnered with Great Rivers United Way, UW-La Crosse and Western Technical College to create Ugetconnecteda one-stop, online volunteer center where you can search for volunteer opportunities by agency, interest, date, and location.  Accounts have already been created for all Viterbo students - all you need to do is click the link below to activate your account (activation takes an average of 3-5 minutes).  When you activate your account, you can indicate what type of agencies you might be interested in getting involved with, respond to volunteer needs, become a fan of agencies, track your hours and print your volunteer resume (the Ugetconnected Tutorial below can help you navigate all this good stuff!).  Questions about Ugetconnected?  Contact Colin Burns-Gilbert, Integrated Learning and Programs Coordinator at 608-796-3846 or cgburnsgilbert@viterbo.edu.
