The State Office of Volunteerism is tasked with engaging Delawareans in service, volunteering and civic action to tackle our State’s most pressing challenges and while lifting up all communities. Our office houses four programs working in tandem to support the service organizations, schools and civic programs that engage thousands of Delaware volunteers to provide critical services to their neighbors and communities each year. Supported by the Governor’s Commission on Community and Volunteer Service and a dedicated team of professionals, the State Office of Volunteerism is driven by a mission to empower and mobilize all Delawareans to volunteer and serve in their communities.







The Volunteer Delaware Virtual Conference Experience is an opportunity to gather with nonprofit, government, business and civic leaders from across the country and around the world for a day of connection and collaboration to support those who volunteer in service to their communities. 

Join us as we help you find your superpower, build super teams, share your superpower and engage with the next generation of service leaders. Our four specialized modules offer you the opportunity to spend the day building skills in a certain area, or you can choose to sample a little of each.

Regardless of how long you have been involved in community and volunteer service, how active you are as a volunteer or your level of experience managing and leading organizations, there is something for everyone at the Volunteer Delaware Conference.

General Admission tickets are just $20 and if you are a student, a member of Volunteer Delaware 50+ or affiliated with AmeriCorps, you can register for free. We are committed to making this conference available to everyone so if cost is a barrier, reach out to Suzanne Farris at (302) 381-3594 or email and we will work with you.

Reserve Corps volunteers will be the first in line to receive the call when volunteer needs arise in Delaware. This could include responding to local disasters, supporting COVID-19 vaccination efforts, or working with volunteer organizations in need of short-term help. These opportunities may arise with as little as 24-48 hours’ notice.
