Madison House serves as the student volunteer center at the University of Virginia. We coordinate volunteers, develop leaders, build community partnerships, and promote lifelong volunteer service. Madison House organizes service programs to address the needs of the community as well as the educational and personal growth objectives of students.
The Madison House model is threefold: leadership, service, and community. Through a train-the-trainer model, professional staff members teach leadership skills to 220 student leaders who then recruit, train, place, and manage the weekly service of more than 3,500 volunteers each year. Our student leaders are chosen by their peers through a competitive selections process to lead one of Madison House’s 21 programs. Madison House sends student volunteers to more than 175 sites at local community agencies, schools, organizations, long-term care facilities, child care centers, and medical facilities.
