The Community Volunteer Council is a network of local businesses, faith-based and civic organizations. This group meets regularly to share insights, network and conduct trainings to develop volunteer programs that engage employees and members of your organization.
Benefits of joining our Community Volunteer Council:
- Invitation to four networking events and four volunteer coordinator trainings every year
- Access to volunteer coordinators from over 300 nonprofit organizations
- In-depth introductions to at least 20 nonprofit organizations each year
- A weekly email listing the latest volunteer opportunities in our community
- A website that helps your employees track and report volunteer hours
- An annual emergency preparedness checkup for your organization
And now our website allows you to share volunteer opportunities, track volunteer hours and search available volunteer opportunities in the community. This will help you reduce staff time and build stronger relationships with your volunteers and the organizations you serve.
Not every organization has their own volunteer coordinator, and we understand that. If you do business with the community in mind, let VolunteerLinc fill that role. We’ll teach your employees how to be better volunteers and match them with causes they truly care about. Being a member of the Community Volunteer Council benefits organizations of all sizes – even those without their own volunteer coordinator.
