Looking to find your perfect volunteer match? The Barrington Area Development Council, in collaboration with the Barrington Area Library, is pleased to announce a new community initiative entitled “Barrington Area Volunteer Connection” (BAVC), which will enable interested volunteers to easily seek out opportunities at local nonprofit organizations.
The foundation of BAVC is a volunteer match software platform called “BAVC Get Connected,” which will serve as a clearinghouse to bring together organizations, volunteers, and collaborators to match volunteer interests with nonprofits needing assistance. The Barrington Area Development Council has purchased the software license for this platform, and the software is FREE to local organizations.
Those in the community looking to volunteer will be able to use the Volunteer Connection to search for their perfect match to area nonprofits by interest category, time commitment ability, and other metrics, making it much easier to find entry into nonprofit organizations even without an initial personal connection.
For more information or to begin using the Volunteer Connection as either a nonprofit or a resident seeking out volunteer opportunities, please go to www.thebavc.org
