New online calendar connecting volunteers

To help those interested in volunteering find project specific opportunities, Community Builders has added an online calendar to its website. 

“We are finding that more and more people want very specific and defined volunteer opportunities that they can tailor to their busy lifestyles,” noted Karin Oliveira, director of Community Builders. “People want to help, but their own resources are limited, especially their time.” 

Community Builders’ Project Volunteer Calendar, which can be found at www.community-builders.net, has multiple listings of one-time volunteering opportunities that don’t require a long-term commitment.

The local nonprofit agencies are welcoming the new medium as well, which is a free resource that will connect the community with volunteer opportunities at their agencies.

“Whether they need only one or two people on a specific day, or a whole team of volunteers for a larger event, Project Volunteer Calendar provides a platform for agencies and community members to recruit, connect, and serve,” added Oliveira.

Community Builders, an initiative of United Way of North Central Massachusetts to promote volunteerism, is a founding member of MassVolunteers, which is providing the online software for the calendar.
