Become a Partner
Nonprofit and governmental agencies seeking volunteers are invited to register with the Volunteer Center Serving Howard County as a partner organization. Registration is free.
Community groups (youth groups, scout troops, civic organizations) and businesses seeking volunteer opportunities: an individual from your group needs to register, at which point you will be able to create a group within the system.
Once your registration has been approved, your organization may begin to submit volunteer opportunities. You will also be asked to fill out our Organization Agreement form (pdf). This is a memo of understanding between The Volunteer Center Serving Howard county and your organization. Complete and submit the form by clicking the button at the top of the form (which will email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org).
It's that simple!
Our new online referral system (powered by HandsOn Connect) is a powerful way to find local volunteers. Once you list your opportunities, you may want to embed the search widget on your own website, making it even easier for visitors to your site to volunteer.
In addition to volunteer referral, the Volunteer Center Serving Howard County supports local nonprofit and governmental agencies through:
Promoting best practices in volunteer management
Communicating opportunities for professional training and workshops related to volunteer management
Encouraging volunteer recognition
Consulting with agencies interested in creating new volunteer programs or enhancing existing programs
Providing materials and trainings to continue the necessary task of disaster planning in local agencies
