Volunteering in Your Community

There are many ways to make an impact while volunteering your time. UHC is touched and inspired by the selfless spirit of all those who volunteer in the community for our community.

What are UHC’s Volunteer Roles?

To keep UHC running smoothly, we need the help of many committed individuals with a wide variety of skillsets and interests. Below are UHC’s volunteer opportunities; let’s find a volunteer role that is right for you!

Volunteer to Teach!

English Classes, Literacy and Basic Skills, or the GED Program

Education is an incredibly powerful tool. If you have a passion for teaching, our students need help with reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Some of our students are new to the English language and will need a strong coach to support their learning efforts.
