Grassroots Program Volunteer Impact Makes it Easy to Volunteer

Ever wanted to volunteer in the metro Detroit area but decided not to because your previous volunteer experiences have been chaotic and frustrating? Fret no more - a local non-profit organization called Volunteer Impact was designed to create a painless and fulfilling volunteer experience for people like you.

Established in 1990 to streamline volunteering opportunities within Southeastern Michigan, Volunteer Impact publicizes a wide variety of volunteering opportunities on a monthly basis, giving prospective volunteers the opportunity to participate in as many, or as few, activities as they wish. In addition, signing up to be a volunteer is an easy and organized process: just visit their website and create an account, or call their office at 248.559.4950 to learn more about specific opportunities. Some of the agencies they work with are: Greeting of Detroit, Habitat for Humanity, Motorcity Blight Busters, Northwest Detroit Neighborhood Development, Salvation Army, and the Southeast Tutoring Program.
