What is a Volunteer Center?

Is it a place, a concept, or an initiative? Yes!

In Iowa, a volunteer center is a professional organization that maintains an online presence that facilitates engaging volunteers in meaningful opportunities to serve, heightens awareness of volunteering by recognizing community volunteers and builds the capacity for effective volunteering by providing learning opportunities in volunteer management. United Way of the Great River Region continues to expand its focus on volunteering with the help of our local, state, and federal partners.
