Getting Involved In The Community
In addition to the great social groups that get together in the region, there are numerous volunteering opportunities, which will also allow you to meet locals, a demographic of people who truly care about the community that they call home.
The Jaycees is a great group of young people in the area (under 40 years of age) that focus on a variety of community projects and events throughout the year. The Jaycees have been a leading group of young professionals since its founding in 1947.
The Rotary Club of Ludington consists of neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting changes in our communities and around the world. They are a diverse group of men and women from many backgrounds and professions. Current Service Projects include: Adopt-A-Highway, college scholarships for local students, City Park Renovation Project, STRIVE, youth programs and much more! Ludington Rotary meets every Thursday for a noon lunch and program at Ludington Center for the Arts.
In an effort to increase the collaboration, connections, and relationships among local non-profits and community members, United Way is excited to introduce the online volunteer and donor opportunity system called “Get Connected.” This system will increase the capacity of the community to meet the ongoing needs of local charities while facilitating the engagement process for non-profit employees.
Get Connected is an easy-to-use web-based platform that matches the right donors, advocates, and volunteers with the right opportunities in our neighborhoods. Users can search for needs based on their own interests, they can reach out to agencies who care about the same things they care about, and they can find meaningful ways to give back. You are encouraged to share needs with your friends on Facebook, invite users to join you in searching for ways to give back, and build relationships with the agencies that are making a difference in our hometown.
United Way is very pleased to reveal Get Connected as the latest way we are giving our neighbors the opportunity to care for one another, and we sincerely hope you enjoy using Get Connecte to LIVE UNITED!
