About UsAndrew

VolunteerConnect.net was created in 2008 by Andrew Portener, a senior at Palm Desert High School. As a student who is actively involved in his community, he wanted to help other high school students experience the same opportunities.

After discovering that a majority of high school students did not actively volunteer, and that part of the problem was the difficulty finding organizations with which to volunteer, the concept behind VolunteerConnect.net was born.

VolunteerConnect.net is dedicated to helping high school students, throughout the Coachella Valley, find organizations with which to volunteer. We provide a list of organizations with thier contact information and a description of the volunteer opportunities available.

VolunteerConnect.net is a single source for students to find volunteer opportunities in our community.
