United Way Silicon Valley is working to improve lives by focusing on education, income and health: the building blocks for a good life. But we can't do it alone. We need the heads, hands, and hearts of committed people like you to help us tackle the problems facing our communities.

From individual tutoring opportunities to school beautification projects, we have many different volunteer opportunities available. No matter what experience or time you have to give, there are many ways to make a significant impact in the community. Here's how...

Featured Opportunity - 2015 Holiday Giving Program
Through this program, we will provide students at seven local elementary schools with their holiday gift wish and a book to advance their reading skills. There are many ways to get involved including purchasing gifts for the students, providing monetary support and volunteering.

One-Day Volunteer Opportunities
Ideal for corporate teams, community groups, individuals and families. Includes science fair judging, holiday gift and book sort and distribution, classroom reading and school site improvement projects. 

Longer Term Commitments
Our on-going opportunities, which range from 10 weeks to a year-long commitment, are great opportunities to use your skills to help make a deeper impact in your community. Includes tutoring, credit coaching, tax preparation for low-income families, and serving as a UWSV ambassador.
