The Current Young Professionals Community Partnership Committee, in collaboration with the Volunteer Center of Brown County, has begun a community-wide initiative to increase volunteerism in Greater Green Bay. WE NEED YOU to help us spread the word and get YPs engaged in giving back to the community! It includes an incentive-based program called “CYP Serves.” This program tracks hours through an online platform called “Get Connected” which allows individuals to connect with nonprofits and identify opportunities they need volunteers for. After reaching certain milestones of volunteering, individuals will have access to exclusive perks, be recognized at CYP’s annual Leaders Luncheon, and eligible for additional volunteer awards. Follow the link for more information on CYP Serves, and then get a jump start by volunteering on Make a Difference Day on October 24! This event is free and open to the public.
Local volunteers gathered together to help out the community on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 25-26 for “Make a Difference Day.” NBC26 had coverage including video of UW-Green Bay helping local families. See move via Local volunteers gather for “Make a Difference Day” | #wearegreenbay.com#.

Make a Difference Day, which took place on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, has been dubbed a success. “Many people volunteer on campus, but being able to do it all on the same day and making that larger impact is really cool,” one UW-Green Bay student said. Check out the Fox 11 full story.
Congratulations to the organizers and participants who made a big difference in the community last Friday (Oct. 26, 2018). UW-Green Bay volunteers totaled 719 hours of service at 18 various sites. On campus, volunteers made 180 cards for disabled veterans through the TRIO Program, picked up garbage, painted, helped with plastic film recycling and cleaned the shoreline. Off-campus projects included garden cleanup, bulb planting and organizing for the Festival of Lights at the Green Bay Botanical Garden; yard work, cleaning and more for the New Community Shelter; and helping the NEW Zoo get ready for Zoo Boo.
