Corporate Volunteering: Building and Sustaining Successful Partnerships
Date: Thursday, November 14th

Location: NYU Kimmel Center @ 60 Washington Square South, Room 406/406
Now, more than ever, companies and their employees are looking for meaningful, impactful ways to provide services, build community, and make a difference. And non-profits are creating new and innovative ways to harness this potential to fill service gaps and solve our common challenges. During this interactive panel discussion you’ll hear from non-profit staff and their corporate partners about how they built their partnerships, best practices for engaging employee volunteers, and the behind-the-scenes details of what makes a corporate volunteering event successful. The workshop will include a panel presentation, Q and A, and small group breakouts to discuss and network. Whether you’ve never worked with a corporate volunteer group or are looking for new ideas for your program, this discussion will provide you with tips and tools - from pitching a corporation, planning a project, and orienting a corporate volunteer team, to evaluating your impact!
