Volunteer Opportunities for Students

Background Clearances Required

Many of our volunteer experiences will have a high probability of working and having contact with children. In the state of Pennsylvania, all volunteers must have the following clearances:

 Criminal Background Check (Act 34)

Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 151)

FBI Federal Criminal History-Fingerprinting (Act 114)

Make an appointment with one of our Volunteer Central staff members or stop by during walk-in hours to uncover opportunities and find a great volunteer placement; some of which are right in our backyard! Use Get Connected, a United Way searchable database of nonprofit organizations and volunteer opportunities throughout Millersville and Lancaster. The United Way of Lancaster provides a list of ongoing volunteer opportunities in the Lancaster/Millersville area (CLICK HERE). We also post opportunities on Get Involved, the central hub for Millersville University events.

Volunteer Opportunities

We also have several organizations that are currently looking for volunteers. For additional information about volunteer opportunities, please contact our Volunteer Central Graduate Assistant, Ronnie Mitchell at ronald.mitchell@millersville.edu or call 717-871-7636.
