FREE local resource Connecting Volunteers with Volunteer Opportunities!
The Orange County Youth Bureau has stepped up to assist with a collaborative effort to increase and expand awareness, access, and participation in the variety of volunteer opportunities available for youth and adults.
The Youth Bureau partnered with United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region to add dozens of new volunteer opportunities to United Way’s Volunteer Portal.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES?
