Our Community Engagement Center serves as a hub for volunteers and organizations in the Eastern Upper Peninsula to find meaningful, supportive connections between those looking to give of themselves, and those in need of assistance.
Our role in the community is centered on the ability to connect people with an opportunity to serve by:
- Building the capacity for effective local volunteering
- Promoting volunteering by recognizing volunteers for their important service
- Participating in the strategic initiatives that mobilize volunteers
Since its official launch in June 2000, the Volunteer Center has reached into virtually every neighborhood in the community to promote, recognize and link to service for area residents. Whether helping to conduct student service days within local schools, convening local stakeholders to address identified needs in the community, or recognizing outstanding service performed, the Community Engagement Center is at the heart of service in our EUP community.
We are one of 28 Volunteer Centers across the state, that help shape new programs and services available in Michigan.
