Our goal is to mobilize the caring power of the community through volunteerism. From individual tutoring opportunities to group neighborhood beautification projects, we have hundreds of volunteer opportunities available.    

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering can mean whatever you want it to. Give an hour. Give an afternoon or a weekend. Give of yourself. Read to children. Deliver a hot meal to a homebound senior. Share your knowledge about taxes. Be a coach. Be a friend. Be a mentor. Do what you can, when you can. It’s a great way to put your talents to work, learn new skills, meet new people, improve your health, and make a difference.

We provide a one-stop shop for volunteers to find opportunities for involvement, match interest of volunteers to community needs and the work of United Way, engage volunteers from all aspects of the community, including students, ensure volunteer satisfaction.  We offer two great ways to find the right volunteer opportunity!  


Group and Corporate Projects

United Way can help your group, club or company align its philanthropic goals with volunteerism.  Strengthen your company, develop teamwork and support your community through volunteerism. Your volunteers will see firsthand the impact a partnership with United Way makes.

Student United Way

Young people across the country are helping to improve their local communities by giving, advocating and volunteering in the areas of education, income and health.  This powerful movement called Student United Way, is helping children in need succeed in school and life.
