Volunteer Expo

After much deliberation, The Junior League of Asheville has decided to cancel the Volunteer Expo for 2021. Due to COVID-19 and the increasing number of infections, we do not feel that it will be safe for the community and our members to hold an indoor event of that size in March.We are also cancelling our Cheers to Volunteers celebration as it is a benefit for our organizations participating in the Volunteer Expo. 

We look forward to a bigger and better Volunteer Expo and Cheers to Volunteers in 2022!

Modeled after a job fair, the Volunteer Expo is an opportunity for residents of Western North Carolina to learn about local nonprofits, their volunteer needs, and other ways to support these organizations. To make this event a success, the League will partner with over 70 local nonprofits, including organizations that specialize in addressing health, poverty, legal aid, environmental stewardship, women’s issues, arts, civic leadership, technology, education, and animal welfare.

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).
