Connecting people with opportunities to serve
- We provide access to information about a wide range of volunteer opportunities at nonprofit and government agencies serving Yellowstone County. We help link people who want to help-individuals, families, students, businesses and their employees, civic community and faith-based organizations-with places where their time, talent and interests can be utilized effectively.
Building capacity for effective local volunteering
- We help agencies, businesses and others who work with volunteers build their skills in recruiting, managing, retaining and recognizing volunteers. We provide volunteer program development and management training and consultation, share volunteer management resource information, and provide training and support for specialized groups of volunteers, such as board members and leaders.
- We raise awareness of the value of volunteering and encourage people to volunteer. We give presentations and provide ideas and information regarding the recognition of volunteers.
Participating in strategic initiatives that mobilize volunteers to meet local needs
- We serve as conveners and catalysts for action. We work with all sectors of the community to identify needs and help design and mobilize volunteer response as part of specific initiatives.
