Partnership of Douglas County Governments launches volunteer website
Information provided by Douglas County Libraries
Through the Partnership of Douglas County Governments (PDCG), nine partner organizations have worked together to create and launch a new countywide website for volunteers. This innovative community resource offers one-stop shopping for volunteers wanting to share their time and skills in the communities of Douglas County.
“The online portal creates an efficient way for Douglas County residents and nonprofits to find each other,” said Ali Ayres, portal advisory group chair. “Volunteers of all ages will find ways to give their time and talents in a way that is meaningful to them. Nonprofit organizations will have help from dedicated volunteers in carrying out their significant missions. It’s a win-win for all.”
Providing an interactive and centralized website experience, www.VolunteerConnectDC.org matches users with countywide volunteer opportunities that can be searched by interest, schedule, location or desired organization. Users can complete a simple profile and sign up for volunteer opportunities across Douglas County with the click of a button.
“The launch of ‘Volunteer Connect Douglas County’ marks the beginning of a fantastic opportunity,” said Douglas County Libraries Director Jamie LaRue, who helped spearhead this effort. “The purpose of the portal is to provide a centralized location for volunteers throughout our communities to access opportunities to make the world around them better through volunteering.”
Volunteer Connect Douglas County is a project of the Partnership of Douglas County Governments designed to sustain a culture of volunteerism in our community. Volunteer Connect Douglas County makes it easy to volunteer!
