United Way's Volunteer Connection
April Community Volunteers of the Month

We LIVE UNITED!Miami Valley Youth LIVE UNITED by volunteering in April – and all year long!

April is a big month for youth volunteering, with Youth Service America’s Global Youth Service Day taking place this year on Friday, April 17th and through the weekend.  Groups from local schools,  colleges, churches and youth groups will be taking part in volunteer events throughout the Miami Valley.   United Way of the Greater Dayton Area’s Volunteer Connection is a lead agency for Youth Service America and will be tracking data on youth volunteering in Greene, Montgomery and Preble Counties throughout the entire month, and we have an opportunity to be a part of a national initiative to give our youth recognition.  If you have volunteer participation and hours you would like to report, please contact Volunteer Connection Manager Nick Eddy at nicke@dayton-unitedway.org, and help the Miami Valley stand up and represent!

Volunteer Connection is also here to place youth groups with opportunities throughout the year, whether on one of our Days of Service or for opportunities tailored to your group’s needs.  Let’s keep our young people engaged and learning what it means to LIVE UNITED.

United Way of the Greater Dayton Area’s Volunteer Connection is proud to nominate our young people as Volunteers of the Month!
