Give the Best Gift of All...YOU!

By encouraging the community to LIVE UNITED, the Heart of Arkansas United Way is not only asking people to give financially but also their time, expertise and energy. As a program of the Heart of Arkansas United Way, the mission of the Volunteer Center is to facilitate meaningful partnerships between volunteers and nonprofit organizations. Our Volunteer Center has more than 190 agencies in Pulaski County that each has opportunities for volunteer work.

The center works to ensure that groups and individuals find appropriate opportunities beneficial to them and nonprofit organizations. Opportunities exist for both youth and adults. Whether your talent is tutoring students, assisting seniors, working with animals, cleaning our environment or just providing a helping hand, we have these and many other opportunities available to you.

Click here to access the adult volunteer directory or youth volunteer directory to find an opportunity that fits your interest, and then go out and make a difference in your community.

You can also fill out a registration form and have us match your interest with an organization in need of volunteers. A community with many volunteers equals a community where people want to live and work.

"Two kinds of gratitude: the sudden kind we feel for what we take; the larger kind we feel for what we give."
Edwin A. Robinson (1869-1935)

Days of Caring

United Way can help your organization or businesses organize a Day of Caring. A Day of Caring gives your employees the opportunity to complete a day-long volunteer project for a local nonprofit. Past projects have included landscaping a garden, painting a room, building wheelchair ramps, or repairing playground equipment. This is a great opportunity for your organization to get involved in the community. Volunteering groups may need to assist with project costs. For more information, contact Jo Lynn Short at 376-4567 or

Nonprofit Training Workshops

In the spring of each year, the Volunteer Center conducts workshops for nonprofit agencies through the Management Assistance Program (MAP). Three classes are conducted each year and past topics have included grant writing, media relations, risk management, social media and board development. The one day classes are affordable at $20 each for nonprofits wanting to further develop their staff. Contact Jo Lynn Short at 376-4567 or
