Building community one event at a time.
Southside Organizing Center (SOC)
SOC is a neighborhood-based organization dedicated to the development and sustainability of Milwaukee's near South side neighborhoods.
SOC has a very small staff of organizers and relies on residents, student interns, volunteers, and other near South side stakeholders to fulfill the mission and work.

Volunteering has many benefits including contributing to a better near South side of Milwaukee and the greater community; developing greater knowledge, skills, abilities, and networks for your portfolio and life; gaining a deeper understanding of the community, its strengths, and its challenges; exposure to diverse people and organizations; and the list goes on and on.

You can help with:
•a single task like mailings and cleaning

•an event like a neighborhood clean up, vacant transformation, or community forum

•a project like neighborhood clean ups or resident surveys/focus groups

•an infrastructure need like social media or IT

•a program like translations, crime and safety, housing and community

Our student interns focus on one major area of interest and also complete a full
circuit through every organizational department.

If you are interested in volunteering or in an internship, please contact our
