Making sure we are strategic with OUR volunteering!
Cristin was taken aback at first when, Diane, a fellow member of our Rockville Chamber nonprofit mastermind group, asked her what she was doing for her personal volunteering. She laughed and said, "You know full well Diane, that my work with Charity Connect is a volunteer position." Diane persisted and Cristin realized that through Charity Connect she is helping other people volunteer and while she typically "tests out" volunteer jobs for our clients, she wasn't exploring volunteer opportunities that fit HER passions and interests. Cristin is now serving as a business mentor for Cornerstone Montgomery. She is committed to spending an hour a month for 6 months helping to connect her mentee with local businesses in order to facilitate her job as a Supported Employment Specialist. Thanks Diane for helping us stay strategic in our volunteering!
