Being strategic about your volunteering by incorporating personal and/or professional goals helps to incorporate service into your life.
Charity Connect facilitates volunteerism through personal connection. We succeed by building relationships with people who want to increase their community service and organizations that utilize volunteers.
Our Volunteer Connection service includes:
- an initial consultation to determine our clients interests, goals, and availability
- suggested volunteer opportunities
- facilitation with the chosen nonprofit.
This service has a $100 flat fee. We are a volunteer-run nonprofit and all fees support our mission to engage more volunteers.
The focus of Charity Connect's Strategic Volunteering workshop is to promote volunteering with mindfulness and intention. Participants are challenged to consider other benefits of volunteering in addition to community benefits. Examples of how personal and professional goals can be met through volunteering are provided. Intention-setting, communication with nonprofits, and proper expectations for volunteer work will be discussed. Participants leave with a self-inventory which can be used to mindfully search for volunteer opportunities. Cost: $150 sponsored or $20 per participant
Spotlight on Teens
Our teen clients gain leadership skills, confidence and rewarding work experience while connecting to their communities through tailored service opportunities. We work individually and in workshops with teens ages 15 and up. Our service education reaches volunteers under the age of 15.
