INDIVIDUAL AND SMALL GROUP VOLUNTEERING
Volunteers are the heart of United Way.
Volunteering can help you make a difference in someone’s life, learn or develop skills, improve your health, gain work experience, and even improves the likelihood that children will volunteer as an adult to name a few.
Below are several examples of short-term and long-term opportunities to make an impact.
One-time Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer with us during United Way Week of Caring (April), Day of Action (June) or at a special event. All year, you can find individual volunteer opportunities with our partner The Volunteer Center of Greensboro.
Become a mentor
Help children in our community succeed in school and in life. Mentoring a child requires a longer-term relationship that can fit your availability. Learn more about our Mentoring Matters initiative and search volunteer mentor opportunities.
Become a VITA Volunteer
You can help low- to-moderate income families keep their hard earned money by preparing and filing tax returns as a VITA volunteer. Learn more about our VITA work and how to volunteer.
Impact Councils & Grant Committees
Be a part of a team that reviews and recommends how United Way of Greater Greensboro can create the most significant impact. Their recommendations inform United Way’s investments in the areas of Education, Income, Health and Basic Needs.
