Volunteer Center

The Volunteer Center is the place to start your service at Butler University. This student-staffed office is dedicated to helping you find volunteer opportunities on and off campus. Volunteer Center representatives are here to serve you in your search for a service match. They are trained to locate specific service sites and to help you explore what your interests may be and how to best suit them. Our staff is involved with service themselves and can serve as wonderful resources for both individual students and organizations. Whether you are looking for a one-time opportunity or an ongoing service experience, please stop by to see us in AU100!


The mission of the Butler University Volunteer Center is to assist members of the Butler University community in finding meaningful volunteer experiences and to provide opportunities to reflect on these experiences; thereby deepening the education of students and making a significant contribution of service to Indianapolis and the larger community.


The vision of the Volunteer Center is to create an inviting and innovative space that empowers and encourages the Butler community through the exploration of intentional, impactful, and educational community involvement.
