Volunteer Opportunities for Students
Background Clearances Required
Many of our volunteer experiences will have a high probability of working and having contact with children. In the state of Pennsylvania, all volunteers must have the following clearances:
Criminal Background Check (Act 34)
Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 151)
FBI Federal Criminal History-Fingerprinting (Act 114)
Make an appointment with one of our staff members or stop by during walk-in hours to uncover opportunities and find a great volunteer placement; some of which are right in our backyard! Use Get Connected, a United Way searchable database of nonprofit organizations and volunteer opportunities throughout Millersville and Lancaster. The United Way of Lancaster provides a list of ongoing volunteer opportunities in the Lancaster/Millersville area (CLICK HERE). We also post volunteer opportunities in CareerConnection and on
We also have several organizations that are currently looking for volunteers. For additional information about volunteer opportunities, please contact 717-871-7655.
