Volunteer to Facilitate a Pro Bono Project
Local project managers and consultants serve as Apparo’s Change Agents, facilitators of our pro bono Community Impact Projects. Through these projects, we increase local nonprofits' effectiveness at serving the community through improved business processes and use of technology.
You'll set the weekly meeting schedule and be the translator, navigator and sounding board for the nonprofit and corporate volunteers. You'll help ensure the project stays on scope, moving towards a sustainable outcome for the nonprofit, and report updates to the Apparo team.
Is project management one of your greatest skills? Let’s use your powers for good as an Apparo Change Agent.
