  3. Realistically, how much time can I give?
  4. What do I hope that volunteering will do for me?

This directory is published by United Volunteers and posted on this web site in cooperation with BAIRNET. On January 1, 1998, a new organization was established that combined the resources of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program and the Volunteer Cneter of Eastern Maine's Youth and Adult Program. This new collaboration provides more opportunities and resources for both programs. The mission of United Volunteers will be to promote, support, and develo0p meaningful volunteerism through the Retired Senior Volunteer Program and the Youth and Adult Volunteer Program in Eastern Maine. These programs are supported by the agencies and sponsors listed in this directory and the opportunities are not all inclusive.
