Presented at 2009 National Conference on Volunteering and Service, June 23, 2009.
Is your non-profit looking for creative energetic staff to carry out your mission and vision? Graduating college seniors face a competitive job market and are often looking for more experience before entering their career field. In San Luis Obispo County, The Community Center has helped dozens of non-profit agencies create capstone experiences for graduating seniors. These recent graduates help agencies with volunteer recruitment, management, fundraising grant writing, and more. Non-profits benefit from the enthusiasm and potential of a recent college graduate and the graduates benefit by gaining work experience for their resume.
