Do you need volunteers for an upcoming project?

73The first step is to complete our Community Partner Application

RochesterCares is seeking engaging hands-on service projects to benefit area non-profit agencies. Our diverse network of volunteers are interested in a wide range of community & social issues, and are always looking for ways to make a sincere impact in their community.

To this end, we offer volunteer recruitment, experienced project management, and in some cases, even tools and supplies to ensure the success of these service projects. Our office will work with your agency to understand your needs, the scope of the project(s), and coordinate an agreeable time to conduct the service project, and post it our online calendar.

RochesterCares will then assign a Team Coordinator to each project, so that our volunteers have a point of contact throughout the entire process. Team Coordinators allow volunteer projects to proceed with minimal effort from our agency partner. We train Team Coordinators to consider every aspect of the volunteer experience – from the time they sign up for the project, throughout the event,, and even following up with our volunteers to encourage feedback and continued support. We believe in the service-learning and civic engagement model of volunteerism, and hope that volunteers find their time spent at a project as very rewarding.

By joining RochesterCares, your organization can leverage the power of our network of volunteers, and tap into resources and best practices shared among our partners at local and national levels.

If your agency would like more information on becoming a service partner agency, call 585-428-7231 or email us at agencies@rochestercares.org.
