Grand Rapids Community Foundation

HandsOn Connect Launched with the Help of Volunteers!

The project to transition from Volunteer Solutions to HandsOn Connect gave our Volunteer Center the opportunity to employ strategies related to pro-bono services and skills-based volunteering. We successfully used a combination of paid staff and volunteers to accomplish our goals. The following is a list of the additional support that we garnered to help with the project:

Lend your Skills, Earn a Stipend: Technology Training Professional
