United Way administers Volunteer Solutions website

Are you an individual looking for volunteer opportunities? Are you an organization that needs volunteers? Volunteer Solutions, is an online volunteer database for both individuals and organizations. Recently, United Way of Racine County assumed the lead role in administering the Volunteer Solutions Web site.

Individual volunteers can create multiple profiles based on their social interests, skills and time availability as well as location. They can find volunteer opportunities immediately or return to the site later to search for additional opportunities. Individuals can even choose to receive email updates when a volunteer opportunity arises that matches their profile. They also can use the site to research the sponsoring agency to learn more about it before volunteering.

Organizations can list volunteer opportunities, and any information they feel is helpful to a volunteer. They can create a link from Volunteer Solutions to their own website for the volunteer to learn more, at no cost.

United Way of Racine County plans to enhance the use of Volunteer Solutions through a more active marketing effort and by working closely with volunteers and the organizations who list their volunteer opportunities.
