Serving Greater Cleveland, the Volunteer Center at BVU is your one-stop destination to make a difference by choosing from among hundreds of volunteer opportunities.

Our free service allows you to look for volunteer opportunities that address the issues that are close to your heart - arts and culture, animals, the environment, hunger, education, literacy, homelessness and many, many more.

Research has shown that people who volunteer tend to live longer, have lower rates of depression, enjoy better physical health, have more friends and are more self confident. Connect with your community and get involved.

- Answer a need
- Make the world a better place
