Teamwork Makes a Greater Impact for Your Organization

Multiply the effectiveness of volunteers by engaging groups to help get your work done.

Overview

The Volunteer Center helps support groups who want to work together by encouraging organizations to develop projects appropriate for friends, co-workers, neighbors and others who want to bond while volunteering.  You can use groups of volunteers for one time needs or on-going projects.  Be creative and think about ways to maximize the power of volunteering at your organizations.

Get Started

Engage group volunteers with your organization:

  • Enter your group project needs into the Database now. Note that with the migration to our new database, software coding for your opportunities may not be complete. If you want groups to find an opportunity you have posted, make sure you login to edit your opportunities. Click on the "Edit Specific Qualities" link so you can check all the boxes that apply for each position. You'll see boxes to designate group projects under "What Types of Volunteers Do You Accept for this Position".
