  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.

Fight Illiteracy
Greater Cleveland Is In The Midst Of A LITERACY CRISIS. Nearly a quarter of Cleveland residents do not have a high school diploma. Testing shows that 80% of the city's kindergartners are not ready for school, and a majority of third graders in Cleveland schools may not pass into the next grade because of Ohio's new Third Grade Reading Guarantee. This crisis may sound overwhelming, but it is not an unbeatable foe. It's time to take action. Please read over The Literacy Cooperative's Top 10 List and learn about ways that you can help win this fight against illiteracy.
