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.
BAVC was developed via a partnership between Barrington Area Development Council and the Barrington Area Library. BAVC brings together the greater Barrington area nonprofits, service organizations and faith organizations in one searchable database so that volunteers can easily find opportunities that match their interests.
Barrington Area Volunteer Connection focuses on fostering connections between Barrington area nonprofits and local volunteers for the benefit of the individuals, the organizations, and the greater community.
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.
