The Volunteer Center can connect you to a wide variety of volunteer opportunities in the community with the convenience of meeting with one staff member. Area non-profit and governmental organizations have listed the details of their needs with the Center through volunteer position descriptions. The Volunteer Center staff looks forward to helping you find a volunteer position where you can make a difference, fill a need, and contribute to the quality of life in our community. Volunteers are encouraged to choose volunteer assignments that they perform on a weekly basis. However, some volunteers have busy or more unpredictable schedules and can be called for short-term or one time special events or projects only.
The Volunteer Center is a service of Hutchinson Community College and is located in Davis Hall, 815 N. Walnut in Hutchinson.
Why should I volunteer?
It has now been scientifically proven that volunteers have improved lives when serving. Their overall mental, social and physical well-being is improved by helping others. The Volunteer Center also provides free secondary excess auto, secondary personal liability and secondary accident insurance while on volunteer assignment, a quarterly newsletter plugging you into the volunteer community, and various volunteer recognition activities.
Volunteer for what?
Volunteers are the 'extra arm' of many non-profit and governmental organizations. They extend the human capacity of agencies and increase each program's ability to provide services to the public. Effective use of volunteer resources is vital to the on-going success of many agencies. In Reno County, there are many non-profit and governmental organizations, as well as hundreds of individual citizens who can benefit when they share their time as a volunteer. The needs are broad and varied. Tutoring students or mentoring a child, delivering meals to homebound persons, providing clerical assistance, assisting zoo keeper staff, serving as a receptionist or tour guide at a local museum or area attraction.....and MANY others!
