In this SSIR Live! program, our expert panelists will walk through these concepts and provide you with the framework you need to knit skills-based volunteering into your everyday practice – whether you’re a large company or an entrepreneurial nonprofit.

In this SSIR Live! program we will explore opportunities and avenues available for nonprofits, funders, and local governments to ensure your local community gets counted.
