Possible Field Placement Sites

It is up to each student to find a field placement site. There are many volunteer opportunities available in the Milwaukee area. However, if it is more convenient you can certainly find a site elsewhere. These websites list a variety of organizations needing volunteers, and the first two (Volunteer Match and the Volunteer Center of Greater Milwaukee) offer a search engine to match volunteers with opportunities.

Below is a list of direct links to a number of organizations serving various populations in the Milwaukee area. We cannot guarantee that these agencies will have appropriate opportunities at the time you wish to volunteer, but this list should give you a number of options to investigate.
