Note about 2020-21 Projects
We’re looking for flexible, nimble, empathetic, and committed individuals prepared to serve nonprofits during these unpredictable and very challenging times. Projects will be run virtually this year. Trainings, team meetings, and client meetings will take place using video conferencing tools. Coming "together", even if virtually, is essential to project success and volunteer satisfaction. Each team decides the day / time for their regular team meetings, so it's important for volunteers to have the bandwidth and flexibility to agree on a weekly standing time.
