We can help your company, organization, or agency be a greater and more visible force for good in DC and a model for communities across the country. There are a number of ways that you can help us make a difference:
- Encourage employees to get involved through newsletters or other material on the need for more community members to get involved and how they can help.
- Support volunteer teams of tutors and mentors by providing transportation or facilitating the commute to a school or tutoring site.
- Permit employees to have a flexible schedule one day of the week so they could volunteer at a local school or other site — especially during the school day or from 3:30 or 4 to 5 or 5:30 pm when many of our partners work with kids after school.
- Give paid volunteer time or time off to employees or other types of support/incentives. (The consulting firm Deloitte, for example, gives its employees up to 48 hours a year for volunteering.)
