Workplace Volunteer Council

Workplace Volunteer Council

The Workplace Volunteer Council (WVC) is a coalition of local businesses that promote volunteerism among their employees to benefit our community and address local needs.

Members of the WVC believe that volunteerism is essential to the well-being of the community; that it is good business to engage workplace volunteer resources in meeting community needs; and that volunteerism is one of the foundations of corporate social responsibility.

The goals of the WVC include:

  • To establish, grow and sustain employee volunteer programs
  • To maximize the positive impact of businesses in Johnson County and surrounding communities
  • To support leaders of company volunteer programs by providing tools, training and networking opportunities
  • To work towards the 2020 Vision Goals

No matter the size of your company, the WVC provides you an opportunity to effectively make a difference.  If your company is ready to team up with other business leaders in meeting community needs, join the WVC! 

Meetings are held quarterly to share best practices on encouraging employee volunteer participation and ideas on effectively promoting volunteerism in the workplace. United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties' expert staff provide additional resources, technical assistance, and up-to-date information on community needs and emerging opportunities to help. Meetings are held at the United Way office, 1150 5th Street, Ste 290, Coralville, IA 52241
