Volunteers are of huge value to organizations, especially non-profits. They are often the backbone of organizations not only do they help organizations save the scarce money they have, they also bring better expertise; their social networks; increased contact with the community the organization is operating in; and help reduce costs of services. At Project Alert, we depend 60% on volunteers, starting from our very committed and professional Board members, to active men and women; students and professionals in the community, who volunteer their time, resources and networks to helping us achieve our mission. We welcome volunteers all year round to assist us in areas such as:
- Fund raising
- Community advocacy
- School-based advocacy
- Skills acquisition training
- Legal aid
- Equipment donation and maintenance
- Shelter items donations and garage sales.
