Getting Started

CUVolunteer is a website dedicated to helping volunteer organizations and residents connect. We're based in Champaign County, Illinois, and welcome any non-profit organizations in search of volunteers and any community members who wish to volunteer their time!

Volunteers

  1. Create an account

    You can browse CUVolunteer without logging in, but to register for opportunities you'll have to create an account. Register now!

    Create your account >

  2. Find volunteering opportunities

    Organizations from all over your community are posting volunteering opportunities which you can sign up to participate in! We provide a variety of methods to help you find the opportunities that best fit your needs, including:

  3. [COMING SOON] Track your volunteering hours

    As you volunteer for more and more opportunities, you build up a portfolio of your volunteering experience. This can be useful for service learning classes, applying for jobs, or just to keep track of your history of volunteerism.

    This feature is coming soon, so check back later for more information!

  4. [COMING SOON] Let organizations find you

    When you create your public volunteer profile, you make it easier for organizations to contact you with volunteering opportunities that fit your interests, skills, and availability. Of course, this is a completely opt-in feature, and no one will contact you unless you choose to create this profile.

    This feature is coming soon, so check back later for more information!
