Employer & Corporate Volunteering

Practical educational and civic transformation.

MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership DC Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education
Join MENTOR and the Deputy Mayor for Education’s office on April 17th for the Youth Mentoring Design Lab to learn about ways that employers are successfully getting involved and think creatively about how your organization can, too!

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: How Business Employers Can Get Involved How BusinNonprofit/NGO/Gov't Employers Can Get Involved

  • 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.)
