Volunteer

On the frontline of the fight for our community are thousands of volunteers who bring LIVE UNITED to life by giving selflessly of their time and talents to create lasting solutions and improve the quality of life for all of us who call this home!

Whether it’s reading to children, serving as a volunteer income tax preparer for low-income tax clients, delivering meals to homebound seniors, or being part of the annual Day of Caring, there are hundreds of ways to roll up your sleeves and make a difference!

Want to lend a helping hand in Alamance County? There are so many ways to give back to our community!

Please see the opportunities below:


 

Looking to give back to the community this spring? We are currently seeking out volunteers for our VITA program. VITA is a tax assistance program for low-income individuals and families. Get started today - free training and certification is available to start now. 

If you have any additional questions or are interested in getting started, please contact Julie Essary, jessary@uwalamance.org.


Holiday Charcuterie Board Class (11/29, 5:30pm) — Alamance Arts

 

Do you like art, entertaining, and gardening? We have a place for you! 

Alamance Arts (located in Graham) is in need of volunteers to assist as docents to welcome visitors and give basic information about the current exhibits. We are also looking for help in the gift shop and receptions as well as extra help with outdoor festivals and musical concerts. We also are looking for volunteers who want to spend some time in our garden. 

The time commitment is totally up to you, whatever time you would like to make! We provide training for those serving as docents so they are knowledgeable about the current exhibits. 

If interested- reach out to Karen Carrouth via email at outreach@alamancearts.org, or by phone at 336-226-4495.  


 

Dogs, nature, and exercise- what more could you ask for! 

Graham Recreation & Parks, Burlington Recreation & Parks, and Burlington Animal Services (BAS) have teamed up for the Hikes with Hounds program and are searching for volunteers. Volunteers take shelter dogs for a hike along one of Alamance County’s beautiful trails. This volunteer opportunity will offer an enrichment activity for some of Burlington Animal Services’ adoptable dogs to get away for a couple of hours to enjoy nature, socializing, and exercise. Hikes with Hounds will be offered one Friday each month at a hiking trail location at a Burlington or Graham park, or along the Haw River Trail.
