About Us

Who We Are

The Triangle Nonprofit and Volunteer Leadership Center (TNVLC) is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization. TNVLC began operations in February of 1972 as a way to help fill the unmet needs in our community.

What We Do

  • Motivate, inspire, and mobilize volunteers
  • Provide leadership and civic engagement opportunities for students
  • Coordinate direct human service projects for the Department of Social Services
  • Engage and develop corporate partnerships
  • Enhance and promote community leadership and involvement

How We Help

The TNVLC works closely with the local universities, the Convention & Visitors Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, Department of Social Services, and local municipalities.


We collaborate with other nonprofits to raise awareness and impact local needs. Most organizations focus on a single issue; however, the TNVLC is involved in all aspects of the community. We partner with groups that address issues ranging from hunger and poverty to arts and culture; from youth and education to senior citizens and retirement homes; from animal protection to environmental protection. We work with agencies focusing on civic engagement, literacy, disaster relief, drug abuse, recreation, immigration, health and human services, and more.


Because of the scope of our programs, we are able to make a broad community impact. Our overall goal is to improve the quality of life in our community.
