In addition to mobilizing a pool of energetic, talented volunteers, the Volunteer Center also strengthens the infrastructure of volunteerism by working with local agencies that utilize volunteers.

Such organizations are invited and encouraged to become affiliate members of the Volunteer Center. These agencies receive an enhanced level of service, including stronger support in volunteer recruitment and management services.
Each July, information is sent to local non-profit organizations, inviting them to become Volunteer Center affiliate members. A summary of the services available to affiliate and non-affiliate members follows.
