The following agencies are eligible for registration:
- Non-profit organizations (not restricted to 501 (c) (3))
- Proprietary care providers (i.e. hospitals, nursing homes)
- Government Agencies
Metro United Way's Volunteer Engagement Center will not be able to register any organization that:
- Promotes political candidates
- Operates from a private residence
- Is seeking to volunteer assistance for personal purposes
- Requires memberships to participate in its volunteer opportunities
Metro United Way's Volunteer Engagement Center reserves the right to refuse any agencies whose volunteer programs' mission and purposes it finds contrary to the spirit of voluntarism. Metro United Way reserves the right to edit any volunteer listing submitted. Inclusion of a volunteer opportunity in Volunteer Solutions doesn't constitute an endorsement of any agency or its activities by Metro United Way.
3. Registration Criteria
- Be non-discriminatory as to age, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.
- Provide a safe environment in which to work.
- Provide a written job description for each volunteer opportunity.
- Volunteer opportunities must be based in Metro United Way's seven county service area, specifically Clark, Floyd, and Harrison counties in Indiana, and Bullitt, Jefferson, Oldham and Shelby counties in Kentucky. If an agency is located in another county, but refers or accepts volunteers from these counties, it may submit its opportunities.
- Designate a contact person- preferably a Director/ Coordinator of Volunteers whom interviews, places and manages volunteers within the agency.
In order to continue receiving referrals of volunteers, organizations are solely responsible for and required to:
- Post/update agency content as needed. Agencies and volunteer opportunities then go through an approval process. This usually takes 48 hours.
- Update their volunteer opportunities every six months or as needed.
- Have at least one current volunteer opportunity posted on Volunteer Solutions at all times.
- E-mail or notify the Metro United Way's Volunteer Engagement Center of any changes in staff, address, telephone number, and email address. This can be done by updating this information in agency listing section of Volunteer Solutions.
