Mahoning Valley

Our Work


United Way of Youngstown & the Mahoning Valley has remained dedicated to uplifting the community with positive change by collaborating with partners. Over 100 years of impact could not have happened without our devoted volunteers giving their time and energy to helping us make lifelong differences in the lives of families within our community. Thank you for your continued support.

United Way of Y&MV is introducing our new online volunteer center, Get Connected, to help connect volunteers with different opportunities that speak to them the most!  


What is Get Connected? 

Get Connected is an online portal that connects volunteers to tons of different volunteering opportunities throughout the entire Mahoning Valley. You can favor different organizations and receive updates when they post a new volunteer opportunity. On your volunteer dashboard, you can keep track of your volunteer hours, impact value, and the number of needs you have responded to!
