Volunteer Leaders are local community members who commit to leading volunteers in service projects on a regular basis. These individuals are trained in basic volunteer management and project planning so that they may effectively lead volunteers in service projects. These individuals are matched with community organizations who need additional capacity in order to lead volunteers.
Opportunities are flexible. Volunteer Leaders are matched to projects based on their interests and availability. For more information, please contact Lindsay Nash at .
