The Institute is particularly interested in "skills-based volunteers" (which typically includes interns). A skills-based volunteer is a different breed of volunteer, one who brings higher level skills to volunteering - hence the name. Skills-based volunteers contrast with "traditional volunteers" who typically work on jobs that require little skill or specialized knowledge - such as serving food in a soup kitchen or cleaning trash from roadsides. Skills-based volunteers are seeking more challenging ways to serve, to use existing knowledge and skills, or to build new skills. Skills-based volunteers may be found different phases of life and with different motivations but share a strong desire to make a difference in a nonprofit setting with work that speaks to them.
