The Volunteer Center, a division of Valley United Way, serves as a community resource matching the skills and interests of Valley volunteers with the needs of nonprofit agencies providing services in the Valley. The Center maintains a database of volunteer opportunities listed by nonprofit agencies in the Valley. It also coordinates the Corporate Volunteer Council (Area Businesses) and the High School Volunteer Council (Area High Schools) as well as United Way's Youth Leadership Program. 

A special service of Valley United Way (and others across the country) is Volunteer Solutions where you can list or find volunteer opportunities. Click here to go directly to that site.
