Thank you for your interest in making a difference in our community by volunteering with United Way’s Hands On Charlotte. At this time, United Way of Central Carolinas is in the process of shifting the model of individual volunteer engagement from the traditional Hands On Charlotte calendar program. The new approach will help build connections that pair individuals with one of our United Way partner agencies for meaningful, long-term service opportunities. Therefore, volunteer orientations will no longer be offered.

Moving forward, in order to advance most efficiently United Way’s core objectives of leading community impact work to address the lack of economic mobility in our region, and generating revenue to support the impact initiatives, we will take a more targeted approach, focusing on skills-based volunteerism, corporate volunteerism and signature special events like MLK Call to Service and Hands On Charlotte Day.

Community Grant Panel Volunteers

Corporate donors, community members and individuals make up our Community Grant Panels. These dedicated volunteers pour over each grant proposal and identify the local programs that align with our strategies and goals to create a lasting impact.
