United Way of the Mohawk Valley is proud to power a brand new volunteer platform...

Volunteers United!

Find Volunteer Opportunities Here

VOLUNTEERS UNITED, powered by United Way of the Mohawk Valley and sponsored by BME and Hummel’s Office Plus, is an easy-to-use, cloud-based site for non-profits to list volunteer projects at no cost to them. This platform will build capacity and drive efficiency for local non-profits as they look to connect with volunteers.

The site offers community members, or organizations looking to volunteer, one centralized location to quickly search for opportunities. VOLUNTEERS UNITED will alert volunteers of new opportunities based on their self-identified interests and favorite non-profits. Tracking volunteer time has also never been easier as the site enables volunteers and non-profits to export reports and create volunteer resumes.

When you volunteer - be it an hour, a day, once a week, or once a month - you can create a tremendous impact on another person’s life. Volunteering will change your own life as well. Whether you are an individual with a desire to make a difference, represent a non-profit looking for volunteers, or a company looking for unique, rewarding, team-building activities, United Way and VOLUNTEERS UNITED is here to serve you.
