Groups and Families

A volunteer team can be as small as two people (i.e., parent and child) or can be larger for companies, civic groups, youth groups and places of worship. Each team will have at least one member who is designated as the team captain who will invite people to join the team, sign team members up for opportunities, manage team participation at opportunities and communicate with team members. Once you have registered as a volunteer, you can create a volunteer team. Learn how to create a team.


Serving together as a family builds strong bonds and a strong community. To volunteer as a family, designate someone to be the team captain to create a private family team that allows an individual to add family members to a volunteer project without an account being created. (This is particularly useful because youth under the age of 13 cannot create an account.) When selecting an opportunity, make sure your family meets the age requirements and that the physical requirements are appropriate for your group. Search for family-friendly opportunities.


Serving with your friends is a fun way to hangout and make a difference at the same time. To volunteer as a group, create a private team that allows the team captain to sign up for a specific volunteer project. Search for group-friendly opportunities.
