The Barrington Volunteer Connection (BAVC) is a single, shared space for local nonprofits, volunteers, partners, and collaborators. Our mission is to promote, recruit volunteers and connect individuals in the community.
Recently launched, BAVC was developed via a partnership between Barrington Area Development Council and the Barrington Area Library. BAVC’s goal is to bring all 100+ Barrington area nonprofits, churches and service organizations in one searchable database so that volunteers can easily find opportunities.
The foundation of BAVC is a volunteer match platform called GetConnected which serves as a clearinghouse to bring together nonprofits, volunteers, and collaborators to match volunteer interests with organizations needing assistance.
GetConnected also offers organizations optional features such as easy record keeping of volunteer hours, mobile check in and shift reminders and other ways to communicate with volunteers.
