  Welcome to Greater Cleveland's resource for volunteer opportunities.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. Since 1993, BVU has been linking volunteers to opportunities that address such issues as homelessness, the environment, crisis support, youth and families, people living with disabilities, seniors and many more.  

We want to make it easy for you to identify and connect with a volunteer opportunity that meet your skills, interest, location and availability. Whether you are volunteering by yourself, or part of a group, we hope you connect with a nonprofit that is close to your heart.

How do we get every child in Northeast Ohio reading at grade level? The answer is easy ? it begins at home. When parents read 20 minutes a day with their child, it greatly increases the chances their child will be a strong reader who graduates from high school and stays out of the criminal justice system.
