This Volunteer Appreciation Week we want to shoutout and thank our community partners for opening their doors to our volunteers and providing essential services to our community every day. By partnering with us to co-design volunteer projects, sharing their needs with us, encouraging us to join in on learning conversations, and welcoming our volunteers on-site, our partners make our work possible! We are constantly learning from our nonprofit partners, who are experts in the needs and lived realities of the community members they serve. Their input gives us the foundation necessary for designing programming that is accurate, equitable, and impactful.
