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.

Volunteer Delaware Reserve Corps

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.
