The Volunteer Center operates with the mission of linking people who care with people in need. The Center's purpose is to increase community involvement and its organizational belief is that increased involvement offers tangible benefits to all participants -- volunteers, agencies, recipients of service, and civic life as a whole. On an annual basis, we provide information to over 50,000 people. Center staff and volunteers provide training, technical assistance and presentations to organizations interested in volunteerism and volunteer management.
