WHO WE ARE
Volunteer Southeast Mississippi (VSEMS), formerly Volunteer Hattiesburg, is a service of United Way of Southeast Mississippi. As United Way's volunteer center, VSEMS serves as a liaison between community volunteers and nonprofit partners to assist with strategic community outreach efforts. VSEMS serves Forrest, Lamar, Marion, Perry, Jones, Wayne, and Greene counties.
WHAT WE DO
We help individuals and groups find volunteer opportunities that match their interests and/or skills while helping local nonprofits recruit volunteers. Essentially, we enable volunteers to get involved in their communities. Meanwhile, nonprofits can utilize VSEMS to connect with people, know-how, and the resources they need to create positive change.
FIND YOUR PASSION. GET INVOLVED.
Get Connected serves as an online platform where individuals looking to volunteer and organizations needing an extra hand can meet in the middle. This site enables organizations within our community to easily promote opportunities, needs, and events. Volunteers can then browse existing needs and register for service opportunities that match their own interests. Get Connected also generates reports on all volunteer data to capture the impact of volunteerism within our service area.
Volunteer Southeast Mississippi requests that any organization in the Pine Belt submit a monthly report outlining the number of volunteers they had involved with their organization. These submissions can be done online here. If you have any questions, contact Ali Rogers at email@example.com.
