volunteers with over 200 nonprofits and schools in need of help through the targeted recruitment of youth, adults, seniors, and corporate employees. Over 10,000 volunteer referrals are made on average each year.

Training nonprofit staff through the provision of nonprofit focused professional development workshops, Strategic Volunteer Management Training Series (SVMTS) courses, a nonprofit technical assistance program, and the distribution of an e-newsletter which discusses local trends and strategies in volunteer management.

Consulting with nonprofits through our Strategic Action of Volunteer Engagement (SAVE) process, which helps agency and school leaders define and recruit for skills-based and pro-bono volunteer needs.
