Why do we need skills-based volunteers?
In our changing global economy, many agencies are struggling to fulfill their core missions and community needs are not being met, yet studies show that:
- Nine out of ten non-profits realize that volunteer skills are very valuable,
- 77% of non-profits believe they would benefit from business volunteers but, 62% work with corporate volunteers and only 12% of agencies assign roles to individuals with a specific skill.
There is a missing link! Organizations need the talents and training of individual volunteers to help increase their effectiveness in the community.
VolunteerConnect is looking for corporate partners that we can work with to engage their employees in our community. Contact Amy Klein at Amy@VolunteerConnectNJ.org or call us at 609-921-8893 for more information.
