Too often nonprofits don't have the expertise on staff to effectively deploy technology solutions in their organization, but there are volunteers out there who can help!

Come learn about the new streamlined approach for posting your volunteer needs using VolunteerMatch's free account, as well as the best practices for creating a listing that will attract the right volunteer for your project.
