Volunteers during United Way's Day of Caring

Volunteerism is at the very heart of our mission.

From the pantry to the boardroom, we leverage our unique position as a community connector to promote and expand volunteer opportunities throughout the Pioneer Valley. In this way, we build the capacity of our local nonprofit organizations together, united by our shared determination to help others and strengthen our communities.

VolunteerConnect is United Way’s volunteerism program, comprised of engaging, useful, and relevant activities in a variety of mediums.

Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Our redesigned Volunteer Portal is LIVE! This is where nonprofit organizations from across the Pioneer Valley post their open volunteer positions.
