Agency Basics

Volunteers represent a diverse group of individuals, companies, schools, and organizations, so it’s important to have a plan when it comes to accommodating them. Preparing for volunteer goes beyond having work to be done and should start before they arrive!

Day of Action 

What is Day of Action?

Day of Action is the largest annual volunteer event in York County that brings together organizations, groups, and individuals from across the community to do two things: volunteer and give back.

How does it work?

Day of Action consists of two main parts: volunteers, and volunteer projects. Any nonprofit can submit a volunteer project that fulfills a need the organization has. Once a list of projects has been created, volunteer registration opens to the community in which groups and individuals can sign up to volunteer at a project of their choice.

What’s the impact?

How to get involved?

There are two ways to get involved with Day of Action: volunteer or host a project. Nonprofits can submit their projects starting at the beginning of March, and then during mid-April project registration opens to the community for sign ups. For more information refer to the training guides or contact the volunteer coordinator below.
