Use Your Brain:

What kind of influence can volunteers actually have? COVID-19 impacted nonprofit organizations harder than anyone ever thought possible. While they worked tirelessly to serve those most impacted, they also lost access to the volunteers they relied on every day. As we emerge from two difficult years, it's time to reimagine the impact that volunteerism can have in our communities. Join United Way for a virtual 5-Day Impact Challenge that will guide you in developing new understandings that you can put to work tomorrow.
