Volunteers Incorporating Service Into Our Neighborhoods 

If you are passionate about volunteering, service, leadership and your community, make yourself at home in VISION. The VISION Volunteer Center provides students and EMU community members with opportunities to learn more about social issues, develop leadership skills and get involved to make a positive change in our society. Our student-led programs, comprised of direct service as well as education and advocacy components, are a great way to meet LBC requirements, earn your work-study award, obtain class credit, meet new people, or spend time learning about our world.
