I currently manage projects and volunteers with a number of nonprofits in the city to help build their tech capacity and outreach.
I have worked as a social media intern in the past with environmental organizations. I am currently working with New York Cares providing technology consultations for our partner agencies and creating unique projects with them. I then recruit skill based volunteers who are tech-savvy and match them with the nonprofit. This allows volunteers who have a tech background to volunteer with nonprofits in a different light. Although they aren't directly helping with the nonprofits mission, they are the background help providing websites, consultations, trainings and more for nonprofit staff members.
I would like to learn more about different nonprofits in the area ie. what is working for them, what isn't working, best practices for dealing with volunteers, etc.
I am an Americorps VISTA member working with nonprofits to build their tech knowledge and capacity in New York City.
