Volunteer Expo


Join us on Saturday, March 23, 2024 from 12-3 PM

at the Crowne Plaza Expo Center!

The Junior League of Asheville, Inc. (JLA) will hold its sixth annual Volunteer Expo, on Saturday, March 23rd, 2024 from 12 to 3 PM at the Crowne Plaza Expo Center. Modeled after a job fair, this free event will feature local nonprofits looking to fill ongoing and future volunteer needs. Nonprofits in almost every area of community concern will be present at the event: health, poverty, legal aid, environmental stewardship, women’s issues, arts, civic leadership, technology, education and animal welfare.

Excitement for the Volunteer Expo continues to grow. The 2023 event featured over 50 non-profits and was attended by more than 250 community members coming to network and sign up to volunteer with nonprofit organizations. Local nonprofits are an incredible asset to our community and are responsible for much of Buncombe County’s progress. We believe that the Volunteer Expo will be a great opportunity for Western North Carolina residents to connect with outstanding nonprofit organizations, learn about what they are doing, and how they can contribute (time, talent, or treasure).

All community members of all ages are invited to attend this event!
