Get involved this fall
We need you!
We are seeking volunteers with diverse backgrounds and skills to join United Way’s Volunteer Impact Partnership Manager Corps. VIP Manager Corps is a United Way program delivered in partnership with 501 Commons that helps local human services nonprofit organizations develop and sustain effective volunteer engagement programs and practices.
VMC Members act as a temporary boost in staffing to help identify volunteer program needs and implement solutions that will develop or enhance the organization’s volunteer program over the long haul. VMC members are expected to volunteer 10 hours per week during the 9-5 workday, including regular check-in meetings and cohort gatherings, to fulfill the program hours.
