The Gist of Strategic Volunteering


The aim of this blog is to help individuals, corporate organizations, and nonprofits learn about the concept of Strategic Volunteering and how to utilize the practice to meet their goals. My advice and recommendations are based on over 15 years of experience as a "serial volunteer" - and subsequent leadership experience in various organizations. I often talk about my strong belief that volunteer opportunities can be excellent professional development opportunities. You just have to know what to look for, where to go, and how to get in the right placement. And for nonprofit organizations, you need to know how to structure your volunteer development and management to accommodate these goals.

In a nutshell, it's about making the most of your limited time and energy while making an impact in your community. It's a win-win-win situation!
