Hometown: Hell'z Kitchen!
February 27, 2005
I think it would be nice for this group to put together some volunteer events - perhaps a Habitat for Humanity work build, or a volunteer day at a local Animal Shelter. How 'bout volunteering at a local soup kitchen, or senior center, as a group?
I've worked/volunteered w/several non-profits (AmeriCorps, Habitat for Humanity, Peace Corps, Meals-on-Wheels, Salvation Army, Red Cross) - to name a few. I'd like to start my own 501(c)(3), & would like 2 meet others who've done so 2 learn from them
Initially,I was a member of this group when the previous Organizer stepped-down.I took over the group 4 a short time, b4 handing it over 2 Lisa, who'se done & continues 2 do an EXCELLENT JOB.I'll be unemployed 1 Dec,so perhaps I can find a job here?!

I joined this community because I'm considering establishing a 501(c)(3) from the existing 'NYC Arabic Language & Culture Meetup' - which I'm the current Organizer of. I'd like to meet others who've started their own non-profits & learn from them.
Have you taken a moment to look through our 'Members Page'? It's quite impressive. We really have a strong group of experienced professionals who are connected within the Non-Profit industry. I'm glad to be a part of this group, and look forward to meeting you all at one of our upcoming events. - Michael Jamal
