Continuing To Help Those In Need

The Volunteer Center of Lubbock was first established in 1990 to connect volunteers with community needs and to provide nonprofit management assistance to area nonprofit organizations. When you ask us what we do, we will tell you we are in the business of community engagement. When you ask us why, we will tell you that we believe a more engaged community has the potential to transform the world. Our work is made possible due to our history of strong collaborative partnerships. We strive to keep a close relationship with our 100+ Agency Partners in order to build a culture of service throughout the South Plains. Beyond that, we strive to develop the next generation of leaders through our partnerships with 40 area middle and high schools, as well as through service and leadership programming specifically geared towards youth and young professionals.

We are committed to developing high performing teams in all areas of our community, whether for profit, nonprofit, or otherwise. We also work to obtain and sustain partnerships with local organizations and businesses in an effort to help the entire community grow and flourish. We are affiliated with the Lubbock Area United Way, Texas Association of Volunteer Centers, Nonprofit Management Association of Texas, Board Source, and Hands On Network. These collaborations provide wide access to information and resources dealing with volunteerism and nonprofit management. In 2016, the Volunteer Center of Lubbock provided services to 41,302 people on the South Plains.
