Best Practices in Corporate Engagement from VolunteerMatch Solutions: Improving Nonprofit-Corporate Relations in Corporate Volunteering, with Chris Jarvis

Why do corporate volunteer groups want the things they want? Why do nonprofits react to common requests from corporate teams the way they do? Most important, how can the differences between nonprofits and corporate volunteer groups be integrated into a single program or service event that can accomplish real goals and solve real community challenges? 

Join VolunteerMatch Solutions for the first Best Practice Network Webinar of 2010 as Senior Consultant Chris Jarvis from Realized Worth discusses the seven most common requests that corporate volunteer groups make of nonprofit partners -- and what corporate volunteer professionals can do to keep relations positive and productive.

How can you avoid wasting valuable time during volunteer activities? As Chris will explore, getting a better handle on the root differences between the needs of companies and the needs of nonprofits can help improving nonprofit and corporate volunteer relations. Join this Webinar and learn how to guide nonprofits to the "best" response.
