What traits are you looking for in a volunteer?
This program has many facets to suit many skillsets and preferences, and all volunteers are welcome.
We are always looking for Spanish-speaking volunteers, especially to help with translation at the front desk, data entry, client intake, and client communication stages.
When you are working with clients, we ask that you are patient, kind, and that you serve all clients with dignity and respect that is free of bias or discrimination.
We believe every United Way community member, donor, volunteer, advocate, and employee has an obligation to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion and be actively anti-racist in their thoughts, work, and actions. We ask that all volunteers ready and respect our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement of Principle.
