Today we’re excited to announce VolunteerCompass – a city-wide resource where you can discover your ideal volunteer opportunities in Memphis. Now you can search by a cause, skill, date and even area of town. It’s easier than ever to make your mark on Memphis. Are you ready to volunteer? Start here! We’re launching with 10 nonprofit partners and will grow to 60 nonprofits by the end of 2017. Our VolunteerCompass is also a way for nonprofits to recruit and manage volunteers.
