Find a Volunteer Opportunity to Make an Impact

The United Way of Salt Lake volunteer program is driven by our mission to ensure that Utah students and families succeed in school and beyond. We work directly with school staff across the Wasatch Front to identify ways community members can help achieve that goal. When you sign up to volunteer, you’re signing up to make a difference in the lives of students by providing academic assistance, supporting a special event, or helping keep a school’s food pantry operational.


Explore our volunteer opportunities at schools across the Wasatch Front.

Does your workplace offer paid volunteer time?

You can use your company’s paid volunteer time at any of our volunteer opportunities! United Way of Salt Lake coordinates volunteer projects with corporate partners regularly and each project focuses on strengthening communities where we live and work. Corporate partners have used paid volunteer time to bring teams together and work in groups to staff meaningful tutoring programs, adopt school events, and tackle Day of Caring projects.
