Volunteer Service Program

Make a Difference Day

The McDonough Center’s Office of Civic Engagement coordinates the Volunteer Service Program at Marietta College. We work with campus organizations to identify service opportunities for all MC students in the Marietta community.

In the fall, the Volunteer Service Program sponsors "Make a Difference Day," a national day of service sponsored by USA Today Weekend and the Paul Newman Foundation. First-year and second-year students in the McDonough Leadership Program plan and implement projects in the community as part of a service-learning activity in LEAD 101 (Foundations of Leadership) and LEAD 240 (Leadership Practicum II). Aside from contributing to the community, the leadership students gain valuable skills in planning and implementing their projects.

In the spring, the Volunteer Service Program sponsors the “Community Service Day,” which is designed to rally the community around special service sites.

Interested in volunteering? Please give us a call (740-376-4561), write us an email ( or drop by the Office of Civic Engagement (McDonough 204) and speak with one of our staff members.
