Volunteers make up the largest human resource in the nonprofit/philanthropic sector. In Arizona, nearly a quarter of residents volunteer, contributing $4.5 billion in service. As such it could be argued that volunteers are truly “essential workers” who make possible the mission and programs of countless nonprofit organization serving the public good. This is especially so for volunteers who serve the most vulnerable of our citizens during this time of ongoing disruption caused by the pandemic and other social conditions.
Join your colleagues (volunteers, donors, staff, board members and interested community stakeholders) for a virtual Forum that reveals the role and promise of skills-based volunteers, the essential nonprofit “workforce” for the “now and the next” in advancing community well-being. Also, learn about the Service Enterprise Initiative as an essential framework for assuring exemplary volunteer management practices.
Opportunities will exist for a virtual volunteer recognition during the Forum to showcase your appreciation of your “essential workers!”
It is fitting that this Forum occurs during Global Volunteer Month. Come learn, engage and celebrate volunteerism in Arizona and beyond.
