Youth & Family Volunteering


Youth & Family Volunteering


United Way’s priority is the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, nonprofit partners and their clients. Our listing of volunteer opportunities is more limited at this current time to reflect that.  We will continue to add safe volunteer experiences to this page as they become available!

Youth Volunteering

(Ages 12 & up)

Volunteering adds experience to a resume or college application and provide new opportunities to learn about your community.  Many local schools requires service hours and we are happy to connect you to local nonprofits in need of support.  

Park Projects

Help clean up a park, mulch trails, and more in Waukesha County.  



Food Pantry Delivery Day

Assist in unloading a large food delivery at the Zion Rock Food Pantry.



Mask Making

Make masks for our young people who, for various reasons, have a more difficult time remaining in a safe, clean space.
