Serving the Juniata Valley

Get Involved

Discover how you can Get Involved to support our cause!

The NuVisions Center has been in existence since 1945, serving the communities of Huntingdon, Juniata, and Mifflin Counties. While we aim to be as self-sufficient as possible, our success would simply not be possible without the support of our neighbors and friends. If you have the desire to get involved and volunteer with us, please do not hesitate to let us know!

Annual Hoot Hike

Each fall season we hold a “hike-in-the-dark” to bring awareness to those living with loss of sight. If you love the outdoors and would like to help with this event, please reach out!

Community Advocacy

One of the most important needs of any non-profit is educating the public on what we do. Whether you would like to join us at a local health fair, or serve on our Board of Directors, we are always looking for helping hands!

Volunteer Course Instructor

We have several classroom opportunities for those who like to teach. Whether leading the class or helping as an aide, we have several programs to get involved with!

Frequently Asked Questions about Volunteering with NuVisions

Can I volunteer at the NuVisions Center?
Absolutely! Feel free to reach out directly to Kate (listed above) or our administration office at 20 Depot St. to discuss upcoming opportunities.
How do I register?

This process may vary depending on the event or program you would like to get involved with, as some require more clearances than others. To get the process started, just reach out at your convenience and we’ll take the next steps together!

Do I have to be over the age of 18 to volunteer?

Not necessarily! Depending on the opportunity and possible clearance requirements, we may be able to accept individuals under the age of 18.

Why are there so many requirements to volunteer?

Because we work with the disabled and special populations, we need to be careful to ensure that our volunteers are properly screened and qualified for the opportunities we may have available. It is our goal to create the best possible experience for both our consumers as well as our volunteers!
