Volunteer with Sioux Empire United Way

We help you help your community.

Join our growing network of enthusiastic volunteers to learn, grow, and make an impact in your community through Sioux Empire United Way's network of supported agencies. We help members better understand the human service needs – providing for children, vulnerable adults, and people in crisis – in our very own community.

In 2022, Volunteer United – formally known as Emerging Leaders – made an incredible impact on our community through over 350 volunteer hours. These hours were spent at Lunch & Learn and through hands-on volunteering. Check out our full impact here.
