Information for Non Profits
The Volunteer Center wants to know...
- Can your program utilize volunteer support from individuals who are mandated by the courts to complete service hours? If so, please let us know. Email Melissa or Debbie. We get phone calls on a regular basis and want to be able to direct people to opportunities to complete their requirements.
- Do you have summer opportunities for students -- middle school, high school, or college? Let us know so we can post them for you.
- If you’ve been putting off the opportunity to engage in social media to market your volunteer opportunities, try students! They can help you set up your sites and teach you how to manage them.
- What about that project that you wish you could get to but the rigors of your daily work keep it in the bottom of your pile of work. Students (high school and college) can help you bring that project to the top and out of pile forever.
