With volunteer opportunities ranging from animal and wildlife rescue to arts and culture, and community improvement and support, Upstate South Carolina offers residents a chance to tap into their creativity when it comes to enriching quality of life for all.

Just look to The Greenville Humane Society, one of the largest no-kill facilities in the Southeast. Or Trees Upstate, a 501c3 dedicated to the mission of planting more trees in Upstate parks, schools and neighborhoods.

Upstate SC is a community where people aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. One case in point is United Way Hands On Greenville Day. On the first Saturday in May each year, volunteers come out to help with dozens of community service projects. In 2023, more than 2,500 volunteers helped with 70 projects across the community.

Whatever moves you, there are groups and causes where you can plug in. Have a passion to promote the arts? Check out the Metropolitan Arts Council. Want to protect and conserve picturesque properties? Work with the Nature Conservancy of South Carolina. How about serving as a mentor? Look to the Boys and Girls Club of the Upstate. To promote continued international diversity, tap into Upstate International or join the efforts of the Hispanic Alliance or Sister Cities International.
