Our Grassroots Consultants program directly partners teams of students and individuals under volunteer professionals with community organizations, projects and events which need specific help.
This provides educational opportunities for partnering students and universities, professional experience for those developing their skills and building their resume, and an incredible way to serve and empower individuals and community organizations.
Rather than money, those served are simply asked if they can provide return services at some point in time.
How it works:
When a person or organization has an idea for a project or event, they submit an application detailing it, and what exactly they would like help with. This then gets submitted to the consultancy list for whatever service specified. people can discuss it, and those excited to help will contact you directly.
No matter who picks the job, work is overseen by a working professional volunteering their time who assists the process, check for quality, and provides valuable advice and insight.
Who is eligible?
Anyone with a great project or idea who needs help getting it off the ground.
