Volunteer Resources

Below is some important information for all our volunteers. If you have a suggestion for something that you think is missing from this page, please feel free to email us at volunteer@saffairs.msstate.edu. You can also view all volunteer opportunities by logging into OrgSync here.


What Is The Maroon Volunteer Center?

The Maroon Volunteer Center serves as a clearinghouse to match volunteers with community partners and service opportunities both on and off campus. The MVC also helps support service based student organizations and events including Service DAWGS, Bulldogs on the Move, Bulldog Mentors, Alpha Phi Omega, and countless others. Finally, the MVC compliments the mission of Mississippi State University by building service and philanthropic partnerships with campus and community organizations.

What If I Don't Have A Car?

If you are in need of transportation to a work site, many of our community partners are located along the smart.msstate.edu shuttle routes. We also have an interactive map that shows our non-profit locations along the shuttle routes and it is available here:  https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zS8KvSxdW9Oc.kRkZCpv4vDSQ

What Are Some Of Your On-Going Volunteer Programs?

You can view a list of them under our programs tab here. OrgSync Service Management organizes volunteer projects as "One-Time," "Repeating," and "Ongoing."

How Do I Sign-Up To Volunteer?

You can stay up-to-date on volunteer projects on campus and in the community by signing-up for our weekly newsletter here. In addition, you can view all available volunteer opportunities on campus and in the community by logging to OrgSync. The first time you login to OrgSync you will need to complete a profile, which is a very simple process. If you are a student, faculty, staff or affiliate of MSU, please select “login with your Campus ID”. Your Campus ID is your Net ID.

Can I Have A List Of The Local Agencies You Work With?

 Also, all our community partners are available on OrgSync. Once you login, click on “organizations” to search our community partners. Do you have information on a local non-profit or agency that we may not have listed? Send us an email at volunteer@saffairs.msstate.edu.

Can I get involved if I am a Distance student?

Absolutely! MSU offers numerous student services that are available to distance education students. Information on logging hours, finding a volunteer project in your area, and volunteer awards for Distance students are available on OrgSync
