Delaware Libraries love volunteers! They are the extra hands and feet needed to effectively reach as many as possible in our communities. Unfortunately, there are times when libraries are unable to utilize the valuable service they provide. In these special circumstances, there are still ways for you to serve across the state!
Delaware actually has a State Office of Volunteerism to help strengthen communities statewide through the promotion of volunteer opportunities (taken from their site).There are over 900 agencies currently registered. Check them out!
The Parks and Recreation departments for New Castle and Kent counties are also accepting volunteers. The latest opportunities are posted on their websites.
The First State Blog is a sister site to Delaware.gov that provides seasonal topics and events. It also provides up-to-date volunteer information and opportunities across the state. Check it out!
One of the most seasoned volunteer organizations is Habitat for Humanity. There are numerous volunteer positions available throughout the year. Take a look!
VolunteerMatch is a national organization that helps people find volunteer opportunities that match their passions. You can narrow the focus to your local area, or look into opportunities across multiple states.
We hope these resources are helpful in your search to volunteer in Delaware. We'd love to have your assistance in our libraries, but in circumstances when that is unavailable, please know you are still able to serve in other capacities across the Diamond State!
