Be the Change!

The Volunteer Center of Erie County creates opportunities for people to volunteer, learn and lead in their communities. We strive to provide volunteers with a high-quality experience that fuel further action, and we envision a day when everyone is inspired and equipped to be the change they wish to see in the world.

Our volunteers make a difference throughout the year…by committing as little as one hour a week, or a month, or by participating in a onetime event. Register here to be a volunteer and we’ll help you find the right fit!

Beyond Response: Joining Forces to Serve in Disasters is a community event designed to bring local organizations, volunteers, and disaster professionals together to build strong and disaster resilient communities.  Sessions will focus on real-world incidents that volunteers supported and issues relevant to connecting community agencies, volunteers, and disaster managers. This free event takes place over two days. Attendees can choose to attend one or both sessions.
