Read to kids. Plan an event. Plant a garden. Decide how United Way dollars are spent. Volunteers make our community an amazing place.

United Way’s HandsOn Volunteer Center is our region’s main resource for volunteering. We have a variety of programs, projects and resources to meet your needs. We connect people to quality opportunities to serve, build capacity for local volunteering, raise awareness of the value volunteers bring to our communities and mobilize volunteers to effectively and efficiently meet local needs.

Join our Volunteer Corps!

United Way Disaster Volunteers
Opportunities are available when disaster strikes, including debris clean up, mucking and gutting and rebuilding communities.

United Way Administration Help
Year-round opportunities are available in the administrative and resource development office. Volunteers are needed to help organize and distribute campaign materials, keep store rooms in order, help with mailings and other administrative needs.

United Way Ambassadors
Our staff enjoys appearing at community events, but there are more opportunities than we can handle! Volunteers are needed to help us  represent United Way at special events by distributing literature, answering questions, and listening to comments and suggestions. Volunteers are our ambassadors!  Community events volunteers should have an outgoing, friendly manner, and be able to talk enthusiastically about United Way of Southeast Louisiana. We’ll teach you all the things you’ll need to know to answer questions and be great at public outreach!
