Volunteer with United Way


Volunteer with United Way

Central to our work are the people who get involved in big and small ways to ensure a better future for our community. Your time and energy are precious, and we’re beyond grateful for all that you’re able to lend. United Way of Olmsted County is looking for volunteers who represent the diversity of our community. People of all genders, ethnicities, races, religions, abilities, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Listening Team

The Listening Team will help United Way and the community gain public knowledge as it relates to hearing the voices of individuals who are not commonly heard and on whose life experience there exists little or no local-level data. Members of the Listening Team will gain public knowledge through hosting and/or processing community conversations and/or being a UWOC representative at community group meetings as they apply to United Way's goal.

Applications for the ListeningTeam are accepted on a rolling basis. To learn more or apply, click here to visit the Listening Team page.


Research Team

The Research Team will help United Way and the community by co-learning with others through research. As part of the Research Team, members will learn through literature reviews, analysis of data, and participation in site visits designed to build knowledge on topics for which it did not exist previously.
