MOBILIZE VOLUNTEERS

Connecting nonprofit organizations with individual and team volunteers

Do you need volunteers? We can help.

Whether you’re looking for a skilled accountant or attorney to provide pro-bono advice or a team of enthusiastic colleagues to pack boxes, we can help you find them.

Leverage our online Volunteer Center

Rhode Island nonprofits can use our Volunteer Center online system to find volunteers. Simply register as an agency with the Volunteer Center, then post general volunteer needs and specific volunteer events on the site. You can ask volunteers to contact you. You can even post specific times and enable online registration.

Once you have posted a listing, volunteers find you by searching by location, date, cause, etc. on the site. Registered volunteers search the site each week using their personalized dashboards. In addition, your volunteer needs will be shared seamlessly on All for Good, the Points of Light network’s national volunteer platform.

We continuously promote the Volunteer Center and selected listings in a weekly Providence Journal column, as well as via this site and social media.

Skills-based volunteers

Looking for highly skilled volunteers? You may find them via the Volunteer Center. You can also speak with one of our skilled volunteer coordinators. They work with our workplace partners to find opportunities for individuals and smaller teams to use their professional expertise to help the community.

Contact us today to start finding volunteers for your organization. Janice Pothier Pac, our director of volunteer engagement, may be reached at janice.pothierpac@unitedwayri.org.
