As a Premier Partner we would like to invite you to join in participating in one of the Volunteer Center programs listed below:

FOR INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEERS

Skilled Volunteering

The Anne Arundel County Volunteer Center Skilled Volunteering Program is a collaborate initiative that provides a means for our nonprofit partners to connect with volunteers who have specific skills required by the nonprofit to meet their organizational needs. Examples include:

  • Designing an organization’s website
  • Conducting statistical research
  • Training on human resource issues
  • Providing expert carpentry skills
  • Translating program materials into another language
  • Presenting workshops to students

How does the Skilled Volunteering Program work?

An organization submits a request for Skilled Volunteering to the Volunteer Center with as much notice and detail as possible. Requests can range in project diversity, length of commitment, and level of expertise. Our Skilled Volunteers Coordinator, Bruce Morgenstern, will then search a database of skilled volunteers for a match and contact those individuals directly to determine interest and to connect them with the requesting organization.  Bruce will also post these requests on the Volunteer Center website on the Skilled Volunteer Opportunities webpage.

The Volunteer Center provides the Skilled Volunteering Program as a resource to our Agency Partners. It is the responsibility of the agency to screen any individuals who inquire about the project.
