Find Volunteer Opportunities Near You!

I’m really excited to announce a major update to our search engine that will now allow you to filter volunteer opportunities by distance. Implementing this functionality required translating all of our stored addresses into latitude and longitude coordinates, and utilizing Google’s Maps API to geocode on the fly all of the addresses for opportunities entered by our nonprofits. Now, when you search for a volunteer opportunity, you can type an address into a location search box. Google provides autocomplete functionality to make this even easier. Then, you can specify a radius of 5, 10, or 25 miles of that location to search within. We hope this new functionality will make it even easier for you to find opportunities to get involved. As always, we welcome your feedback on our website and look forward to future...
