Cultivating volunteers.

Empowering leaders.

Transforming communities.

Since 1990, we’ve connected volunteers with community needs and provided nonprofit management assistance to Lubbock-area nonprofit organizations. When you ask us what we do, we will tell you we are in the business of community engagement. When you ask us why, we will tell you that we believe a more engaged community has the potential to transform the world.

What we do

Leadership Development

We believe that everyone has the potential to become a leader. Let us help you or your team find your purpose, so that together we can transform the world.

Placing Volunteers

For the Volunteer Center, service is about more than just volunteering. It’s about discovering your personal passion and purpose and then putting that purpose into action.

Events that Inspire

We created Gathering for Good moments to provide opportunities to help others find their perfect moment to get inspired, find your passion, or connect with others.
