Volunteer in the Community
Many organizations post their volunteer needs on GivePulse.com. There are a wide variety of opportunities available here for many non-profit and charitable organizations across the city and the region.
The University of Arkansas provides a central hub for over 180 non-profit agencies and organizations in Northwest Arkansas to list their service projects. You can search by interests such as animals, kids, environmental, or one-time projects. As an individual you can log your service hours and keep track of all the projects you have been involved with. Organizations are encouraged to register with the Center to post opportunities and reach a large audience of willing volunteers.
