Which area of nonprofit work do you do or want to volunteer for?

I currently manage projects and volunteers with a number of nonprofits in the city to help build their tech capacity and outreach.

What are your previous experience or skills you feel can contribute to a Nonprofit?

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.

Why did you join this meetup group?

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.

Do you understand that NYCNP is a joint effort created by its members and volunteers. You have to take your RSVP seriously and be responsible for your own health and well being when joining outdoor events.

yes
