Become a Volunteer Leader:

Volunteer Leaders are the backbone of Lorain County Volunteer Connection projects. To become a volunteer leader you complete a two-hour training, and make a committment to leading four to six projects per year. Volunteer Leaders are on-site at projects and serve as an extension of the LCVC and agency partner's staff. As a Volunteer Leader you help guide our volunteers through projects, answer any questions, and show them the HandsOn difference.
