  4. Gain More Empathy
  5. Build Long-Term Generosity
  6. Develop A Civic Identity 
  7. Build New Relationships
  8. Work As A Team
  9. Find Meaning and Purpose
  10. You Will Have Fun

How to Get Started:

Everything takes place on our Volunteer Portal. You can browse opportunities without an account, but you’ll need to register and create a profile to actually respond to an opportunity.

If you don’t see anything that fits your interest and schedule, check back later as opportunities are always being added. You can also Become a Fan of any agency to get updates on their needs.

Each agency will have their own process for accepting volunteers to make sure you are a good fit for them. USE THE “AGE” FILTER TO NARROW DOWN YOUR SEARCH (the ranges are “14 and older” and “16 and older”).
