Whether you enjoy rocking babies, painting rooms or mulching flower beds, there is a place for you as a volunteer in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.  Celebrate the legacy of James Madison by volunteering your time and talents during Community Service Day.  In partnership with United Way of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County , we’re offering a variety of opportunities both on and off campus to connect with United Way agencies that advance the common good in our area.

According to United Way of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, volunteering offers physical, mental and emotional health benefits galore.  Volunteering can also help you build valuable job skills, meet new friends and contacts, and enhance career opportunities.  Want to explore volunteerism after Madison Week?
