Volunteer connection

In addition to meeting service hour requirements and looking great on college applications, the students we connect are personally fulfilled by their "right fit" volunteer opportunities.

 

Service Education

Students can be powerful agents of change. Charity Connect works with student leaders to facilitate service clubs and other school or class initiatives.  

I was inspired after learning about Malala from my 6th grade World Studies teacher and wanted to help other girls who don’t have the same rights as me. After working with Cristin, I wrote a proposal to my school for starting the school’s first Girl Up United Nations club. My teacher was inspired by my efforts and now leads our club where my friends and I work to ensure that all girls have the right to education and safety.

Service Project Planning

Our service project planning service empowers young adults to serve a nonprofit by volunteering, raising funds and advocating. Students emerge as leaders; feeling confident in the impact they make.

Cristin worked patiently with my daughter to develop a Bat Mitzvah project idea built around my daughter’s interests, connected her with the perfect nonprofit organization to achieve her goals, helped her make a plan of action that was ambitious yet achievable - with a number of components that helped my daughter feel connected to the work and get her friends involved, and guided her from the plan’s inception to its completion. My daughter enjoyed the project and was so proud of what she achieved. She was more successful than we imagined, and this experience will no doubt encourage her to engage in charity work in the future. Thank you Cristin and Charity Connect!
