VAC connects people with opportunity to serve
VAC provides easy access to a wide range of volunteer opportunities at nonprofit
organizations in Lackawanna County. We link people who want to help - individuals,
families, students, businesses and their employees, civic groups, and faith-based
organizations - with places or issues where their time, talent and interest can
be utilized effectively. We involve groups - students and adults - in episodic or
short term volunteer opportunities.
