Volunteer With Local Nonprofits

What is your professional background? Ever thought about applying your unique skills to improve the lives of kids or protect the environment?

Seem farfetched? It’s not. Local nonprofits need skills like yours to bolster the work they do on the ground.

At SVP we connect nonprofits with people who have experience in:

  • Project Management
  • Information Technology
  • Marketing, PR and Communications
  • Financial Management
  • Human Resources
  • Legal Affairs
  • Coaching and Leadership Development
  • Public Speaking
  • Fund Development
  • Strategic Planning
  • Photography
  • Board Development and Governance
  • Program Evaluation and Performance Management
  • Market Research and Survey Design

SVP volunteers build databases, develop marketing plans, revamp human resources policies – you name it. All that behind-the-scenes work that helps nonprofits fulfill their missions more effectively.

Volunteer projects range from a few hours to multiple years, from discrete one-time tasks to ongoing relationships, and from specific assignments to broad management of multiple projects. Partners work in teams or solo, and have opportunities to build their skills and make new connections through our Communities of Practice.

SVP staff and Lead Partners are available to match and support volunteers in their work – and more often than not, volunteers walk way having gained as much as they’ve given.
