Connecting businesses and professionals to volunteer opportunities.

January 5, 2016 - We're so pleased to share that effective this week, the CVC is now formally operating as a program offering of Leadership Montgomery! Please pardon our dust as we work to bring our technologies together.

Skills Based Volunteering

Skills based volunteering uses the talents and abilities of an individual, department, or company to fulfill a volunteer opportunity or otherwise meet the needs of a nonprofit organization. The skills applied may or may not be a function of an employee's job. Skills based employee volunteering may serve as a leadership or other professional development opportunity or as a team-building exercise for a small group of employees. 

CVC-MC nonprofit partners often share skills based volunteering opportunities including copy-writing, mentoring, tutoring, job coaching, and event coordination. CVC members can contact us for assistance in identifying skills based volunteering opportunities for employees.

Pro Bono Service

Borrowed from the legal sector, pro bono service offers nonprofit organizations high-quality professional services at no cost. Pro bono service is a subset of skills based volunteering that is specific to standard business practices such as legal services, marketing, information technology and human resources. A successful pro bono service project will find both the nonprofit and the employee volunteers treating the project as if market-rate consulting fees were being exchanged.

CVC members can contact us or the Montgomery County Volunteer Center Pro Bono Consultant Program for assistance in identifying pro bono opportunities for employees.

Montgomery County Pro Bono Consultant Program

The Pro Bono Consultant Program of the Montgomery County Volunteer Center matches individuals who want to volunteer their professional expertise with nonprofit organizations that need help with specific projects. In recent years, nonprofits have come to appreciate the enormous value of using skills based volunteers in areas such as accounting, marketing, graphic design, writing/editing, information technology and strategic planning. Similarly, members of the business community recognize the value of providing pro bono services as an important recruiting and training tool, not to mention the beneficial impact on their community. If your business or your individual employees are interested in putting your skills to work by taking on a pro bono project, or to learn more about this program, contact probono@montgomerycountymd.gov.
