Bringing Volunteers and Nonprofit Organizations Together
The ultimate purpose of our leadership programming, our vision, is to see vibrant communities and workplaces developed within East Central Indiana supported by skilled, collaborative and engaged leaders. In other words, our programming itself is not the end game; having our program participants use their leadership abilities to positively impact the community they represent is.
The CONVERGE website and yearly event are vehicles for that vision.
An online job board for volunteer opportunities
Think of the CONVERGE website as a job board for volunteer opportunities. Not-for-profit organizations, free of charge, can post the volunteer opportunities they currently have available. Individuals looking for places to volunteer can then view all the volunteer opportunity postings and find those that match their interests and talents. The site also features profiles on some of ECI’s inspiring volunteers and spotlights on various ECI not-for-profit organizations.
The face-to-face version of the CONVERGE website
The CONVERGE event is a yearly event hosted by Shafer Leadership Academy that brings together East Central Indiana’s willing and talented volunteers, face to face, with the area’s not-for-profit organizations that want their assistance the most. Like a job fair for volunteers, CONVERGE seeks to connect the interests, passions, and abilities of potential volunteers with the causes in their community they care most about.
