Update Your Volunteer Profile

Volunteerism is at the core of The Mountaineers mission. Update your Volunteer Profile to better connect with volunteer opportunities that match for your skills and interests.

As a 15,000 person community, our membership has a wide variety of skills, talents, and volunteer interests. But as a large and decentralized organization, one challenge we face is connecting interested volunteers with our many different volunteer opportunities.

By keeping your Volunteer Profile updated, you give our volunteer and staff leadership more information to get you plugged into volunteer opportunities that might interest you.

Tell us about yourself!

Share your interests and skills with us by updating the information in your My Volunteer Profile tab on your Mountaineers member profile. This allows our committee leaders and admins to search the Find Volunteers page for prospective volunteers who might be a good fit with their current volunteer needs. 

Please take a moment to tell us about your volunteer skills and interests, what types of projects and activities you are most interested in, and keep your profile updated as your interests change. This helps our committees identify the people who will most enjoy volunteering for a particular task.

Keep your volunteer profile updated

Many members tell us that volunteering is one of the most rewarding aspects of their participation with The Mountaineers. Volunteering is a great way to meet new adventure partners, stay connected with lifelong friends, and to share your love of an activity with others.  

When you love what you do, it can be easy to bite off more than you can chew, and we recognize that interests and availability change over time. We encourage you to keep your My Volunteer Profile updated, and also to be honest if you need to say no to an ask for support. We have amazing volunteers, but taking on too much is a recipe for burnout. We hope you’ll find an enjoyable, meaningful way to stay connected with our community for many years to come.
