Our Volunteer Program

Volunteer Iowa accepts and promotes the involvement of volunteers at all levels of the agency to build capacity, fuel growth, and inspire our work. It is our goal to have volunteers and staff work in true partnership with shared responsibility and accountability in the delivery and support of our mission and programs. 

Our engaged volunteers have a tremendous impact on helping achieve the Volunteer Iowa mission and complement the work of our staff by:

  • contributing more than $335,000 worth of service each year
  • multiplying the reach and effects of the services, initiatives, and programs we offer
  • allowing the commission to utilize taxpayer investments in a much more effective and impactful way by decreasing program and administrative costs
  • assisting in developing and increasing innovative ways to engage volunteers and improve the volunteer management infrastructure across Iowa
  • bringing new insights and energies to the work of the commission
