 What services does Volunteer Connection provide?
Online Volunteer Matching Database:  Our online database allows nonprofit agencies to register online and post their volunteer opportunities so that they can efficiently find the right volunteers for their organization.  Listings will display areas of interest, skills, schedules and point of contacts.  Potential volunteers can browse hundreds of opportunities representing multiple nonprofits and use an advanced search feature to target their search.
GoodsMatch:   An on-line bulletin board service which allows community members to search requests for donation needs posted by local organizations or to publicly post items to donate.  Items can include clothing, office products, vehicles, personal care items and more.
BoardsMatch:   Organizations can recruit volunteers that share a passion for their organization's mission to serve as board members.  Potential volunteers can respond to a variety of leadership positions available.
Disaster Skills Bank:  Post training opportunities available before a disaster strikes and disaster projects available for volunteers after a disaster.  Volunteers interested in responding after a disaster can register their areas of interests in the Disaster Skills Bank to be among the first volunteers to be considered after a disaster.
