RochesterCares Makes Volunteering Easy!

RochesterCares provides all of the volunteer coordination, so our volunteers can enjoy their time supporting these service projects that help area nonprofits further their commitment in the community.

How do I sign up for a project?

Volunteering for a project is simple!

What can I expect when I attend a volunteer project?

124Our volunteer board members and team coordinators work hard to ensure that projects go smoothly. We work with over 25 nonprofit agencies in the Greater Rochester area to find projects that we consider meaningful and rewarding opportunities for our volunteers.

The team coordinator will serve as your primary contact throughout the project. They will give you all the information you need about the agency and the project, including directions. And while on-site, they ensure that all volunteers understand the project and provide tools, if needed. Most importantly, we hope you have fun giving back to your community!

What happens after my project?

The team coordinator will ask you to evaluate your experience with a brief survey. This information helps us assess the project’s impact, your experience as a volunteer, and our coordination services. Our goal is to make this a rewarding and meaningful volunteer experience for you. We intend to make every effort in making your experience a positive one, in the hopes that it will encourage you and others to make a difference every day.

Do you offer any group projects?

Part of a fraternity/ sorority, a church group, alumni association or other civic group looking to do community service? Depending on the size of your group, we may be able to accommodate your group at one of our many calendar projects, or we can arrange a service project just for your group. Let RochesterCares handle the details for you. We provide the project and you provide the volunteer power!
