Now that summer is here, it is the perfect time to get back out in the community and volunteer. Not sure how to find the right volunteer opportunity for you? United Way has you covered with Volunteer SouthCoast.
Volunteer SouthCoast has been the go-to place to find volunteer opportunities since 2013. Here, you can browse through hundreds of volunteer opportunities at non-profit organizations in Greater Fall River, Greater New Bedford, and Greater Plymouth County.
“Volunteer SouthCoast makes it easy for anyone to get involved in the community and do good,” said Victoria Grasela, VP of Marketing and Community Engagement at United Way of Greater New Bedford. “VSC is the one-stop-shop to find a volunteer opportunity that is right for you no matter where you live or your interest.”
To get started, visit volunteersouthcoast.org and sign in. If you aren’t on the site yet, it only takes a few minutes to register. Once you are logged in you can search all opportunities or narrow down your search by filtering by age requirement, location, or interest. Once you find something that interests you, simply hit “respond” and your information will be sent to the organization and they will contact you to get you started.
Once you start volunteering, don’t forget to log your volunteer hours and impact. This is a great tool for students with volunteer hour requirements for school or clubs or for adults looking to see their impact each year. Hours can be logged via the website or the mobile app, Volunteer Get Connected, which is free in the Apple or Google Play Store.
Need help registering for the site, logging hours, or building a volunteer resume? We’ve got you covered with a series of short tutorials that can be found on YouTube.
And what makes this site even better is that it is totally free for you to use and for organizations to post opportunities on. Volunteer SouthCoast is made possible by United Ways Greater Fall River, Greater New Bedford, and Greater Plymouth County. New Bedford Mitsubishi encourages you to Live United.
