After 2 decades, CUVolunteer ceasing operations

After 2 decades facilitating a link between volunteers and agencies providing volunteering opportunities in the Champaign-Urbana community, CUVolunteer has ceasing operations as of March 1, 2021. We are proud to have served this community for so long, and look forward to the new approaches coming soon for volunteer support from the United Way and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Here are options going forward for finding out about volunteering opportunities:
