Volunteer Advisory Teams

Volunteer Advisory Teams, is United Way volunteer-driven community investment process designed to fund local programs that are clearly aligned with UWRC’s focus. The community investment process is evaluating program proposals, making funding recommendations and reviewing data to monitor program outcomes. VAT volunteers must live or work in Racine County and be available to attend virtual meetings from October through May. We ask that volunteers attend monthly meeting in the fall and bi-weekly meetings January – April. Meeting times are scheduled from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. The total time commitment for each year is approximately 30 hours including, additional time as needed between scheduled meetings to review materials. Volunteers are asked to make a minimum commitment of two years. No prior experience is needed with the exception of Community Investment Financial Team (CIFT) volunteers, who must understand how to review financial documentation.
