The LMC Volunteer Service Program is a campus-based volunteer service center matching volunteers’ interests with campus and community-based needs. Students, faculty, administrators and staff who wish to volunteer are “plugged in” to help meet needs through the LMC Volunteer Service program’s coordination with numerous non-profit agencies and organizations in the community. The college goal in creating a volunteer service program is to create a culture of service throughout the college community. Many of the volunteer opportunities are coordinated in partnership with the Volunteer Center of Southwest Michigan which serves Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren Counties.
