Visit this site to see how one organization is matching highly skilled volunteers with community needs.
The Executive Service Corps Affiliate Network (ESCAN) is a nationwide network of nonprofit consulting organizations. ESC affiliates, found in nearly half the states in the nation, are management support organizations that provide high-quality, affordable consulting services and other technical assistance to nonprofits, schools and government agencies.
The ESC affiliates offer high-impact volunteer opportunities to executives and professionals who have had senior-level experience in business, government or nonprofits. Their volunteers are motivated by a desire to “give back” to the community. These men and women are committed to strengthening the management of nonprofit agencies in order to build the agencies’ capacity to effectively address their missions.
Much of their work is in strategic planning, improving board effectiveness, coaching CEOs, marketing and business planning.
