A new volunteer center has been established by the United Way for our region!
The United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. announces the establishment of the North Country Regional Volunteer Center (NCRVC). Funds for the volunteer center come from a grant established by the NYS Commission on National and Community Service. (Volunteer center has been established by the United Way)
There are a total of ten regional volunteer centers throughout New York State. Learn more about them on the NY Regional Volunteer Center Directory.
The North Country Regional Volunteer Center encompasses 7 counties: Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence (NY Regional Volunteer Center Directory).
While the NCRVC office works “directly with national service programs, their goal is to include all service organizations in their activities as well as provide support to community organizations throughout the region and state” (Volunteer center has been established by the United Way).
The mission of NCRVC is to create “opportunities for people to volunteer, learn and lead in their communities. [They] strive to provide volunteers with a high-quality experience that fuels further action, and envision a day when everyone is inspired and equipped to be the change they wish to see in the world” (North Country Volunteer Center).

The NCRVC “fortifies the system for area-wide data collection that invigorates advocacy efforts, case statements for founders, and recruitment of volunteers. The web-based volunteer center will match registered volunteers with not-for-profit agencies that have volunteer opportunities” (Volunteer center has been established by the United Way).
Volunteers and agencies who wish to work with the NCRVC can register at www.northcountryvolunteer.org.
There will be training for agencies that wish to use the free volunteer center and its website to input volunteer opportunities held on Aug. 24, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the United Way office located at 45 Tom Miller Road, Plattsburgh.
