How are you or your business making an impact in our community? More and more businesses across the nation are seeing the value of community engagement. And with more employees seeing multiple benefits of volunteerism, they now expect their company to offer programs to support volunteerism or the community.

Whether it’s recruitment, retention, employee and community engagement, or public relations, volunteering is good for business.

Whether you looking for a new career and need to expand your network, looking to upskill for a new role, or most importantly just want to give back to the community in which you live, volunteering is good for you.

You are invited to Evolve, A Professional Development Series on Wednesday, April 3rd from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm where Mike Calvo of NobleHour will show you how to fully leverage your company’s volunteering initiatives to maximize those benefits for your business, and Jason Hickox, from Camp Ukandu, will explain “be selfish, volunteer”.


Mike Calvo, Director of Sales & Development – NobleHour
