Connecting People with Purpose
Our Mission: To positively impact communities by connecting people to enriching volunteer experiences.
We accomplish our mission by:
Connecting volunteers to serve in over 150 area nonprofits and schools through HandsOn Connect our online volunteer matching database. Over 400 volunteer opportunities are listed by our nonprofit partners each week and over 6,000 volunteer referrals are made each year.
Direct Service Programs our in-house volunteers provide academic tutoring, mentoring and service learning offerings to at-risk students in five area schools. Our senior volunteers also provide an intergenerational pen pal program that serves students in three elementary schools. This program promotes literacy and writing skills for the children and helps reduce isolation for seniors while increasing their mental acuity.
Training nonprofit staff through the provision of nonprofit focused professional development workshops and Strategic Volunteer Management Training Series (SVMTS) courses.
Recognizing volunteers and volunteer managers by hosting yearly recognition events and publicizing their accomplishments through our newsletters and social media platforms.
