  • Using your skills for good by developing sustainable deliverables and outcomes.

"It was a great honor to be asked to assist Pattison’s Academy with their Human Resources Systems needs. After doing my research and having my initial meeting with the key stakeholders, I immediately did all I could to give them the best experience ever. This experience indeed has proven that volunteering gives true enlightened satisfaction of self and that one can a make a difference through volunteering by simply saying “yes” when asked." - Tasha Singleton, Skills-Based Volunteer
