 Are you a nonprofit or government agency that:

  • Needs to accomplish more with fewer resources?
  • Can benefit from skilled and experienced volunteers at no additional cost?
  • Wants assistance with developing skills-based opportunities and recruiting volunteers? 
Our volunteers have time, a commitment to service, and specific skills, experience, and interests.   They are ready to help your organization in the capacity you need including:
  • Ongoing organizational support – editing a newsletter, providing administrative and client intake service, managing a program, or as a member of your board 
  •  Short-term consulting projects, such as grant-writing, accounting, strategic planning, marketing, web design, and IT help
  • Direct services to your clients, including tutoring or mentoring programs, teaching adult literacy, or providing career counseling to those in transition 

The 50+ Volunteer Network supports you by helping you identify your skills-based needs, develop these opportunities, and recruit for the positions, so you can easily harness the talents of these skilled volunteers. Read our FAQs for Nonprofits and Government Agencies
