Make It Easy For Your Employees To Volunteer
Start planning now for this year's National Volunteer Week, April 15-21. That's the week when nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S. will celebrate and honor their volunteers.
If you are not already volunteering, what a great time to start. Make a commitment to yourself to start volunteering before that week starts!
And, if you are a workplace leader who supports a volunteer program at your business, you already know that by encouraging employees to give back to your community you are:
- building teamwork
- motivating employees
- attracting new hires
Fortunately, throughout the U.S. there are hundreds of volunteer opportunities where employees can contribute individually, or where leaders can organize teams of employees to volunteer together on a routine and scheduled basis.
To find organizations in need of volunteers, go to Volunteer Match and type in your zip code. You'll be presented a list of nearby volunteer opportunities. Also, you can find opportunities on iParticipate.
