Our Volunteer Community Helps You Help Others

It shouldn’t take days or weeks or multiple forms to verify your eligibility to volunteer. Volunteering should be easy - and now it is with Sterling Volunteers.

Our platform serves as an online community for dedicated, repeat volunteers to find new opportunities and organizations to work with. It’s also the best way to complete your volunteer screening process quickly and get to work making a difference.

Join Now

There’s no cost to join our volunteer community.

You only pay for your background check.

Designed With You In Mind

Sterling Volunteers was created by a team of lifelong volunteers to solve some common problems: 1) Difficulty finding volunteer opportunities that align with your personal purpose; and 2) the painfully slow process of being OK’d and verified to work for a volunteer program.

We’re proud to say that our platform and volunteer community solves both problems. Now, in one place, you can find volunteer opportunities that fit with your purpose and abilities as well as dramatically speed up your volunteer screening by providing the organization with a verified background check in advance.

Shareable Background Checks

If you want to volunteer more than once and with multiple organizations, consider our Volunteer Fast-Pass. It’s a shareable background check, which means you pay for a volunteer background check once and then you’re able to work with multiple organizations. It saves you time and it saves the organizations you work with money.
