During these times of uncertainty, we can always rely on our Executive Network members to step-in with their expertise and skills that can help our community, including small businesses and non-profits.
Jeff Black, Partner at McDermott + Bull and a well-known connector in the non-profit community, has connected the EN with a local non-profit, OneOC, who has requested volunteers for their EVC volunteering opportunities.
OneOC’s mission is to accelerate nonprofit success. They are committed to making nonprofits in Orange County as efficient and effective as they are passionate about their missions. As Management Services Organization (MSO), OneOC provides solutions and support services to nonprofits and companies, helping them reach their goals, make a greater impact, and engage with their communities. They proudly build bridges between the public and private sectors to make Orange County a better place for us all.
About the EVC Volunteering Opportunity
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, the Orange County Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC) has been activated to support immediate volunteer needs, including hands-on and virtual opportunities during this disaster.
OneOC is coordinating efforts to recruit and manage Spontaneous “Nonaffiliated” Volunteers in response to this disaster. Through the activation of the Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC), they are now PRE-REGISTERING Skills-Based Volunteers (which are volunteers who have already had training and or experience in these areas) and will be connecting them to future disaster-recovery projects and or needs…if/when requested by nonprofits and county agencies.
About Skills-Based Volunteering (SBV)…
As an SBV, you will be connected with a local nonprofit in meaningful & purposeful service to help address unmet emergency needs. During your service, you will fulfill critical project-based assignments that will bolster immediate infrastructure of the nonprofit at which you are serving. You will accelerate an organization’s success by being a new source of time & talent while solving critical social issues through strategic, creative, out of the box thinking.
Although specific skills will vary for each SBV project request, ALL volunteers must submit a resume and certifications (if applicable), as well as participate in interview(s) and will be background checked.
In order to create a more accurate and immediate response time, ALL Volunteers are encouraged to update their current Volunteer Account Profiles, including uploading resumes and any applicable certifications.
