Skills Based Service Engagement Tool Before getting started on a skills-based volunteer project, there are things you can do to ensure that your organization is ready and that skills-based volunteers ─ experienced business professionals offering their expertise in areas like IT, finance, strategy, marketing, or design ─ are the right solution to meet your need. Successful projects require an alignment of organizational needs, a clearly defined project scope, and leadership and staff buy-in. The Skills-Based Service Engagement Tool created by Points of Light and Taproot Foundation in partnership with ConAgra Foods Foundation prompts you with the right questions to help you assess your organization’s readiness to take on this important work. The tool will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. After you complete the assessment, we will send you an email with your organization’s rating in each category as well as insights and recommendations to help your organization strengthen its effectiveness in engaging skills-based volunteers.

They crave opportunities to act as project managers, legal advisors, financial strategists, online marketing gurus, business coaches, HR consultants (the list is endless). Sadly, nonprofit organizations are not yet stepping up to offer the opportunities these talented people desire. There are very few opportunities designed with these people in mind.
