Community Program Research Seeks New Nonprofit Partners
The NYJL is exploring options to create four new committees that will help us meet our strategic goals outlined in the most recent Strategic Plan:
By 2018, the NYJL will increase the effectiveness of its Community Program by filling gaps in current programming with regard to its Concentration Areas (Adult Education & Mentoring, Children’s Education, Children’s Health & Welfare, Culture & the Arts) and its Core Competencies (Direct Service, Training & Education, Capacity Building), by ensuring its volunteers are well-prepared for their work in the community, and by evaluating community projects against the NYJL’s critical success factors (impact, membership satisfaction, reputation-building and fundability).
The Community Program Research committee, chaired by current Outstanding Volunteer Carrie Organisciak, is a 14-member committee comprised of both Sustainers and Active volunteers. The Committee is tasked with finding new or existing community partners with a need for service during the NYJL volunteer year. We encourage NYJL volunteers to share this opportunity with nonprofits who align with our mission to serve women and children in NYC through educational and charitable service. The committee will also consider the types of services that we can provide, utilizing the skills and resources of our volunteers.
Nonprofits who would like to be considered should complete an application on the Community Impact section of our website. Every applicant will receive a response. Each potential partner will be assessed for fit, followed by a meeting with the organization’s executive team and a facility tour.
Interested organizations can also contact the Community Program Research committee with questions.
Please help us spread the word and encourage organizations to apply!
