The VOiCEup Berks website provides a link for individuals, families, teams, and corporate groups to join together and engage in meaningful volunteer opportunities throughout Berks County.
We strive to promote volunteerism and get people involved in their communities. VOiCEup Berks does this in partnership with other organizations so we are working together to bring about long-lasting change in our communities. From motivating children to discover and learn, to serving hot meals to low income families, to caring for the environment, to large scale transformational projects, residents of Berks County are responding to critical needs.
VOiCEup Berks provides screened and supervised activities that serve to build capacity within nonprofit, faith-based, and public organizations. We're about empowering people to make change. Join us…be part of the change!
