  • Encourage volunteering – Working with local non- profit organizations and community organizations to identify volunteer projects.
  • Connect people to volunteer opportunities – including arranging team projects for local businesses to recruiting individuals using social networking and traditional media.
  • Provide training and support to make sure volunteers are effective and appreciated.

If you have good planning and organizational skills, are a good oral and written communicator, and have the passion and basic organizational and planning skills to help get things done – then we encourage you to apply.
