The Community Corps makes tech volunteering easy

We provide a range of opportunities for volunteers to share their skill and make an impact. We know that tech professionals are busy people – so many of our projects can be completed virtually or “Done in a Day”.

Why skilled Volunteering? Why You?

.Effective use of IT is a challenge for nonprofits

.Nonprofits lack confidence about having enough skilled technology staff to execute their mission

.Students that interact with tech professsionals are more encouraged to pursue STEM

What Moves You?

The Community Corps volunteers can share their expertise in two distinct ways:

.Internal IT or Capacity Building

.Program Delivery / STEM Mentoring


The Solution: Passionate Professionals Like You!

Best Practices

.Volunteer for projects that match your skill set(s) – enthusiasm is great, but you’ll need expertise as well.

.Don’t over-commit yourself – only volunteer for projects you’re confident you will have the time to complete.

.Provide adequate notice if unable to meet an agreed-upon deadline.

.When in doubt, ask – our concierge team is here to assist you. Email: Concierge@thecommunitycorps.org for support.

.Have Fun – Helping others is rewarding, but it shouldn’t feel like a chore.
