During the National Conference on Volunteerism and Service, I was lucky enough to co-lead a roundtable on encouraging skills‐based volunteerism with Danielle Holly, the Executive Director of Common Impact, and Lindsay Firestone, the Director of Advisory Services at the Taproot Foundation. During the roundtable, we shared a set of resources to help participants build, grow, and measure the impact of skills-based and pro bono service. Danielle and Lindsay shared their work on the Readiness Roadmap, the product of a collaborative partnership between Taproot, Common Impact, Points of Light, and Capitol One.

Those of you who missed the conference have access to the full resources below. Designed for companies across many stages of their development, they will help you:

    • Manage the program to ensure a great experience for your employees and partners
