Find Volunteer Opportunities

We’re excited to introduce a new online resource for finding and posting volunteer opportunities!

UServeUtah is partnering with JustServe to connect you to service opportunities in your community so you can make a difference wherever you are and however you want to serve. We are excited to team up with nonprofit, faith, and government organizations nationwide to post volunteer needs and opportunities to serve.

Using JustServe

A simple search on JustServe.org will tell you

  • How many total volunteer opportunities are available in your area (you can select a specific radius in miles).
  • Which organizations need help.
  • What kinds of roles need to be filled to provide the best level of care across our state.

Lt. Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate

Certificate Details

The Lt. Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate will recognize Utah residents who demonstrate exemplary volunteer service to their community. The certificate will be signed by the Lt. Governor and will be distributed by the Utah Commission on Service and Volunteerism on a bimonthly basis. Nominees for the Lt. Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate will automatically be considered for the Power of Service Award.

For more information, please contact Ruqia Qasim at rqasim@utah.gov or (801) 245-7222.

To nominate someone for the Lt. Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate, click here.

Purpose

The proper recognition of volunteers is an important component in any volunteer program, large or small. With ongoing issues relating to volunteer retention nationwide and in all types of organizations, UServeUtah encourages some form of appropriate volunteer recognition. To that end, the Commission awards volunteer recognition certificates to Utahns for outstanding contributions to local communities. The Lt. Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate is aimed at recognizing just a few of the many volunteers who help make Utah a better state, while promoting and inspiring further ongoing volunteer efforts.

Criteria

In order for a volunteer to receive a certificate, the submission must be accompanied by a narrative statement that describes the nominee’s community service activities and demonstrates how those activities address the community’s serious social problems. Narratives should be no longer than 250 words. Volunteers with identical, generic narratives will not be issued certificates. Please write unique narratives for each volunteer. One time or short-term volunteers (unless otherwise noted) are not eligible.

Achievement
The nomination must reflect the actual accomplishments achieved through voluntary service.

Community Need
The voluntary community service must address unmet human, educational, environmental or public safety needs.

Ongoing Involvement
The voluntary community service must be ongoing rather than a one-time activity, with the exception of outstanding service for short-term crisis situations.

Other Requirements
Nominations for the Lt. Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate must be made by someone from within the volunteer organization. There is no age requirement. Service must be performed in Utah and the volunteer must be a Utah resident. Service must be preformed by an unpaid volunteer, not a national service participant.
