We serve as a single point of contact for individuals and nonprofits to find and share volunteer opportunities in the Southern Tier.
Volunteers can:

  • Search for opportunities by location, populations served, issue area, and
    volunteer activity type.
  • Search for specific types of volunteer opportunities (group,
    court-ordered, youth-friendly)
  • Express interest in or even sign up directly for volunteer opportunities
  • Search for volunteer opportunities by date/time.
  • Coordinate a group of volunteers in one or multiple locations.

Organizations can:

  • Easily post their volunteer opportunities
  • Decide to either allow direct signups to an opportunity, or to screen volunteers first.
  • Manage teams of volunteers for special projects.
  • Easily track volunteer hours.
  • Connect to a larger pool of potential volunteers through the regional partnership.

This is a service of the Institute for Human Services, who also offers a number of volunteer support resources including professional development opportunities, management resources, communications tools, and customized consulting services.
Our new site is part of a partnership with the United Way of Broome County and the United Way of Tompkins County called the Regional Volunteer Center of the Southern Tier.

Major funding and support comes from the United Way of the Southern Tier. Additional funding comes from the New York State Commission on National & Community Service.
