No organization or entity is successful without Volunteerism. Volunteers have diverse backgrounds, skillsets, and they have many things in common; they want to assist/help/inspire and uplift their fellow man. American Volunteers give back from very personal and often profound life experiences. USA Volunteer services are estimated in labor cost – $167 billion; those are economic service value numbers for your organization.
2 entities examples – Catholic Charities and Christian Charities, visit their perspective webpages and look for volunteer opportunities. The abundance of opportunities in Florida and around the country will not dim your Volunteering goals.
If you or your organization is a nonprofit IRS 501(c)(3) please let us know, we can adjust our fees.
In addition to background screening, many entities require Volunteers to attend class training and acknowledge that volunteer placement is up to the organization. These added criteria have not stopped United States Citizens – that is 77.34 million adults – 30.3 percent of our population from Volunteering.
