Get Connected to Volunteer Opportunities

As we continue to grow and flourish in a world connected by technology, River Valley United Way is working to make your volunteering life more productive, fun, and engaging!  Recently, we partnered with Galaxy Digital, a web-based communications firm, to provide a robust and versatile volunteer engagement and management tool to communities across the River Valley.

Similar to social media platforms like Facebook or Google+, regional non-profit organizations create profiles on Get Connected that highlight their mission statements, contact information, needs, and events. Participating agencies can then post available advocacy, employment, and volunteer opportunities as well as any in-kind donations that they may need.
Likewise, interested volunteers create individual profiles specifically tailored to their schedule and interests, join volunteer groups, become fans of participating agencies, and track non-profit agencies’ needs and events.  Individuals in search of volunteer opportunities may also use Get Connected to conduct detailed searches on open opportunities.
