The Volunteer Action Center (VAC) by the United Way of Tanana Valley
Ready to set up an account with the VAC? When you sign up, you'll be asked to indicate the causes you are most passionate about, as well as your volunteer interests. By providing this information, you'll make it easier for the VAC to recommend the organizations and volunteer opportunities that match your values and preferences. You'll also have a chance to "fan," or follow, one or more agencies that are registered with the VAC!
When a volunteer fans an agency, they'll get email updates whenever their fanned agencies post new needs or events. It's a great way for a volunteer to keep abreast of what their favorite nonprofits are doing in the community, and to be among the first to sign up for new opportunities that they care about. The agencies shown in this step are primarily those whose causes match the new volunteer's.
