I had the honor of being asked to come speak to San Francisco non profits at the San Francisco Public Library. The host for the morning was the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development. I was asked by Catchafire to share my experiences utilizing the platform over the last 9 months.
If you are unfamiliar with Catchafire they are a nine year old skilled based volunteer network that matches non profits of all sizes to volunteers who have unique skills that can be utilized by non profits. Examples of these would be report writing, board assessment, web development, & business coaching.
The Street Smarts has completed nine projects so far and have two in progress. We have been able to receive over $63,000 worth of volunteer service. It has helped us to reach new heights.
