What is Skills-Based Volunteering?

Skills-based volunteering is applying your professional skills, experience or education to make a difference at a non-profit or community organization.

Many nonprofits don’t have the financial means to pay for all of the skills they need to get their work done. Volunteers who provide expertise in areas like accounting, marketing, strategic planning, graphic design or facilities operations can make a tremendous difference to helping the nonprofits create social change.

There are so many benefits to skills-based volunteering! Here are a few…

  • Create social change in your community
  • Continue development of your professional skills
  • Share your education and experience after retirement
  • Achieve personal fulfillment
