United Way of Thurston County is proud to be supporting volunteerism in our community. With this site, our intent is to provide a comprehensive clearinghouse of volunteer opportunities, so that anyone looking to volunteer can make an impact on the issues they're passionate about, and so that organizations working for the common good can reach out to dedicated individuals who want to make a difference.

If you're looking for a volunteer position, VOLUNTEER THURSTON enables you to search by sponsoring agency, focus area, length of commitment, and zip code. Just click on "Needs" in the orange tab at the top of the page to get started! We hope you'll take a moment to look around and see all the different ways that you can help great organizations to build a stronger community and a better quality of life in our area.

 If you represent an agency, and want to let people know about your work and recruit volunteers to help, Volunteer Thurston gives you a place to post your mission statement, contact info, and volunteer and in-kind needs. Just make sure that your information and position descriptions are detailed and complete so potential volunteers will know who you are, what you do, how to reach you, and how they can help!

Thank you for taking a look at Volunteer Connection! We hope you will find the site to be a useful resource. If you have friends or colleagues with an interest in volunteerism, please let them know about this site; our goal is for Volunteer Thurston to be a powerful tool for creating change, built collaboratively by the community, for the community. Your thoughts and suggestions are always welcome, so that we can make sure that Volunteer Connection best serves the needs of volunteers and organizations in our area.
