Project Overview

Help our nonprofit build long-term sustainability by investing in our people. We are looking for an HR volunteer who can brainstorm volunteer recruitment and retention tactics alongside our team.

Activities of this project may include:
-Leading a collaborative brainstorming process around retention tactics
-Distilling ideas from brainstorming activities into a prioritized list of recommendations
-Advising our team on best practices for implementing the recommended retention tactics

We estimate that this pro bono project will take from 4-6 weeks to complete and use (on average) 2-4 hours of volunteer time per week.We are at a critical growth point and a dedicated team of volunteers would support us in being able to operate at a higher capacity. We're looking to develop a volunteer and recruitment strategy that can support us in developing long-term volunteers to sustain our campus, Liberation Landing, which includes Su Casa, The #BreathingRoom Space, Gardens and Farm. Our nonprofit has compiled a list of staff and volunteer retention tactics that we've tried in the past, as well as new ideas that we'd like a volunteer's insight on. We will come to this pro bono project ready to share details about our staff members and volunteers so that you can get to know our stakeholders. We will also be prepared to share our current staff compensation package.

Implementing retention tactics generated during this project is a top priority for our team. Our work can't happen without our amazing people! We need your expertise on where to start and which ideas could have the biggest payoff.
