Spirit of Volunteerism
Thank you for considering UCDC for your volunteer
needs. Please take a few minutes to better understand
the requirements for UCDC projects. If your needs
fit within these guidelines, please contact us to
request support for your organization or personal
needs. We believe people have the power to make
a difference. It is our aim to help, inspire, and
support a generation of people who see the need
to do something, believe in their ability to get
it done, and then take action.
UCDC is here to help people learn, volunteer,
ask, and take action to make the community we live
in a better place. Currently, only 23% of this generation
Our hope is to create a generation where more
than 51% of people are involved with community volunteerism.
- While we are there to
volunteer, we do try to incorporate a social
element, enabling volunteers to chat with one
another while working together. Activities that
are conducive to this are preferred.
- We typically work 2-4
hour shifts. If your event is longer than this,
do consider breaking out the volunteer responsibilities
into shifts. UCDC can then take responsibility
for bringing volunteers to one of the shifts.
(Rarely will we be able to arrange to cover
- UCDC will provide an
event manager at every event to help mobilize
the volunteers and keep things running smoothly.
A representative from your organization must
be present at all times as well.
a minimum of 4-6 weeks notice to consider requests
for volunteer support. We are sometimes able to
accommodate requests with less lead time if we do
not have any conflicting events during the time
you need us.
As UCDC is completely volunteer-run, and we all
have day jobs, we are rarely able to accommodate
events during the day on weekdays.
Please also understand it may sometimes take
a few days to respond to your request, as we pass
information across our team to determine if we will
be able to coordinate coverage for your event.
Information We'll Require :
- If we have
not worked with your organization in the past,
a short bio on your organization and its mission.
- A short description
of what we will be doing during the project
and how this benefits the overall effort.
- If it has been an ongoing
project, please provide a little history about
the project itself.
- How many volunteers
you will need.
- Dates and times you
will need volunteers.
- A clear meeting place.
- Special instructions
such as parking or clothing to wear, etc.
- Directions to the site.
- Contact name, telephone
and email of the person we will interface with
at the site.

that you would like volunteers to be aware of.
