We bring local organizations together in one setting to recruit volunteers from the community. Over 50 organizations have participated, as well as hundreds of residents looking for volunteer opportunities over the past few years.
Join us for our upcoming volunteer fairs!

Niagara Falls Volunteer Hall of Fame
The Niagara Falls Volunteer Hall of Fame was launched in 2017 via collaboration between Niagara University’s ReNU Niagara program, Mayor Paul Dyster and Congressman Brian Higgins. The primary goal of the Hall of Fame is to honor, document, and recognize significant volunteer efforts by individuals who have been long-term contributors towards community improvement. New to the 2019 Volunteer Hall of Fame will be the Gen Next Award to honor an outstanding youth age 18 or under for his or her exemplary service to the community.
Nominations for Volunteer Hall of Fame inductees are closed for 2019. Please click here for details about the recognition.
