Stephanie McCullough (Mayor's Office)

Project Purpose

The purpose of this PIP is to request funding for collaboration between Hands On Nashville and Metro Government to coordinate volunteer engagement in Metro departments for the following reasons:

  • to help supplement the service s they provide to the community
  • to maximize Metro’s capacity of volunteer opportunities and engagement
  • to measure the impact and value that volunteers add to Metro government and the communities served by Metro

Hands On Nashville would provide the following services for this collaboration:

  • training and technical assistance to Metro departments on identifying, establishing and/or maintaining volunteer opportunities
  • Coordinating volunteer engagement using the HON system and database
  • Tracking metro employee volunteer initiatives, such as the initiative established by Executive Order 12 that pays Metro Employees 1 - 2 hours a week for volunteering or mentoring in a Metro School.
