Hundreds of SVP Partners volunteer their professional skills to help strengthen local nonprofits every year, with 70% giving more time after joining our network. Through SVP’s Communities of Practice we amplify the power of these volunteers by connecting those who share similar backgrounds.
In these groups, volunteers sharpen their skills, share best practices, create tools, templates and trainings, and collectively tackle projects. Most importantly, Communities of Practice widen and deepen our pool of volunteers, enabling us to meet nonprofit needs efficiently and effectively.
