Thank you for being a United Way Volunteer - from serving on committees to getting families back in their homes, you are creating a better place to live, work and raise our families right here in Southeast Louisiana.

A year-long calendar of volunteer opportunities that are available in 2019 can be found here. The public can select from the projects listed and register online to participate. Members of all ages are invited to join in the challenge, as family-friendly projects will be offered throughout the year.

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!
