Volunteer opportunities are always available here at United Community Services. You can serve as a volunteer in our YouthBuild program. As our youth prepare for the GED, individual tutoring builds on lessons learned in class and propels students towards earning the GED quicker. Also, as AmeriCorps members our students will complete at least 450 hours of community service and you too can work alongside them. Many projects held throughout the year engage members of the community in interacting with our young people as they work to become productive members of the community. Projects have included painting murals, building community gardens, and trail clearing. Or volunteer to follow-up with dislocated workers after a lay-off to make sure they are connecting with community resources, and to see if they need assistance finding employment or filing for unemployment.
