Every year, the Volunteer Center celebrates five National Days of Service. These are days on which Americans all over the country come together to give back in their communities. We work with our partners to plan projects for volunteers to make the most impact we can on those days. Whether volunteering with your family, coworkers, or friends, we want to inspire hearts for service and ask you to join us in getting involved!
Upcoming National Days of Service:
January 15, 2018 — Martin Luther King Jr. Day
April 21, 2018 — Global Youth Service Day
October 27, 2018 — Make a Difference Day
November 17, 2018 — Family Volunteer Day
Family volunteer projects are provided through the Volunteer Center once a month during the school year and weekly during the summer.
This summer, projects are every Thursday from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Children receive an interactive game board to log their volunteer hours, which they can send to the Volunteer Center to redeem for recognition. Contact Celeste Medina to request a game board for your child!

United Way Youth Division is a student-led program for high school students coordinated through the Volunteer Center of Lubbock. Through agency presentations and “hands-on” service projects, teens receive an in-depth view of Lubbock Area United Way agencies. The program is open to all area high school students in grades 9-12 who are interested in meeting other teens, learning more about agencies, and volunteering.
Participants engage in youth-organized meetings, hands-on service projects, and opportunities for leadership. All of these activities work toward creating the next generation of community leaders!

The Education Matters initiative through the Lubbock Area United Way has targeted goals and strategies that create opportunities for people at every stage of life. Success by 6 emphasizes providing a healthy start for children which offers a greater chance of being successful in school.
Success In School connects young people with the resources they need to graduate from high school and move on to a brighter future. Success For Life helps adults gain the literacy and job skills needed to work and live independently.
The Volunteer Center works with agencies who are addressing these needs in the community. Through bi-monthly meetings, referrals, presentations, and training, we support the efforts of these agencies and promote their education volunteer opportunities.
