UlsterCorps is a countywide resource dedicated to fostering a culture of volunteerism, collaborative work and community service. Our mission is to educate about volunteerism and best practices, facilitate successful and effective volunteer placements, and build collaborations among nonprofit organizations, local government agencies, and businesses engaged in community involvement throughout Ulster County. While UlsterCorps involves individuals of all ages in its activities, it has a deep commitment to engaging and educating youth in community service and leadership.
The UlsterCorps U-Team provides qualified volunteers the opportunity to serve in rewarding short-term, and often immediate, assignments throughout Ulster County. U-Team members function together as an active and dedicated cadre to help meet community needs. As a U-Team member you’ll receive notifications of diverse short-term volunteer projects and events that need your skills and experience. The U-Team coordinator communicates with organizations needing assistance to ensure that the volunteer response is appropriate and the agency is prepared to receive help. Notification of an activity, with clearly stated details, is then sent to U-Team members who individually respond if interested in participating.
