Hands On Atlanta and CareerVillage.org announce a new partnership at the Points of Light Service Unites 2018 Conference.
Always looking to innovate and lead where volunteers can better serve the Atlanta community, we're excited to announce an impactful new way to help youth excel in college and career through CareerVillage.org, an online, on-demand volunteer platform.
CareerVillage co-founder and Executive Director Jared Chung made the announcement on Monday evening, live from the main stage at the fabulous Fox Theatre, inviting the audience to participate in the digital volunteer opportunity to give advice to underserved youth. Volunteers from Hands On Atlanta and Points of Light were on the ground throughout the entire conference celebrating and supporting those who decided to take the challenge. Through this initiative, thousands of people were able to help students across the country by supporting them in their future careers.
Jay Cranman, President and CEO of Hands On Atlanta said, “Being able to facilitate this awesome partnership is an incredible opportunity for Atlanta youth and a perfect example of the power of volunteerism. With CareerVillage.org, youth can ask college and career readiness questions, and professionals can answer from anywhere at anytime. We’re excited to continue to push the needle on new and innovative ways to connect volunteers to the needs of our community.”
Jared Chung of CareerVillage.org said, “I’m excited to work with Hands On Atlanta and Points of Light. They are amazing organizations who have been championing service and volunteerism for decades. Joining forces with them is a great opportunity to push digital volunteering forward. The reason we can provide career advice to youth at such massive scale is that digital volunteering is accessible and flexible. Anyone can participate, whether as an individual, with a company, in church groups, or in the field, and everywhere in between.”
