What We Do/Have Done
SNS recognizes that there are numerous organizations performing great work, and that with just a few more committed and skilled volunteers, their impact could reach so much further. SNS ignites large-scale social change by effectively empowering issue-based organizations of the DC metro area, with over 1,500 hours of skills-based service.
How it Works
Through leadership training and customized service plans, SNS harnesses the energy of driven and socially-conscious millennials who desire to volunteer in a meaningful way.
Placement Process: Matching skill to need
SNS works with the host organizations to identify capacity needs and customize service projects, and then matches appropriate volunteers based on skills and interests.
Service: Consistent, skills based volunteering
Volunteers commit to volunteering at least 10 hours a month to their host organizations, under the support of SNS. These deliverable-based projects involve strategic planning, operations management, development, program modeling.
