Civic Engagements

“[Volunteerism is] an opportunity for students to do something about the gulf they find between the real and the ideal in American society today. The enormous energy and talent of America’s college youth could offer an answer to many of our communities’ pressing, long-neglected needs.”

Remarks of Senator Bob Dole
Kappa Sigma Founders’ Day Banquet
December 7, 1969

The United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center is a comprehensive resource for civic-minded individuals in Douglas County.  The center was inspired by the vision of a Douglas County resident who believed that each one of us has the ability to make a difference in our community through volunteering.  The United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center works to foster positive change in our community through volunteerism. The Center implements a variety of strategies to actively recruit volunteers of all ages and from all walks of life to serve in Douglas County.  It links volunteers with meaningful opportunities to serve and acts as a clearinghouse for the volunteer needs and opportunities available in Douglas County. Individuals or groups who want to volunteer can access their searchable database or work directly with our staff to find opportunities to serve.

Every year, the center helps hundreds of volunteers find meaningful ways to use their time and talents to make Douglas County a better place, providing more than 100 nonprofit organizations with the volunteer workforce they need to accomplish their missions.  Challenge yourself and give back to your community.
